Free ebook alert!
Bob Summers, the author of several books about Dr. Samuel Mudd (who happens to be his great grandfather), has just released a brand new book! This one is called The Doctor’s Wife: A Biography of Sarah Frances Dyer Mudd.
This volume explores the life of “Frank” Mudd as she dealt with the arrest, imprisonment, and eventual death of her husband. It also provides a nice primer of the Mudd children who were born out of their union.
To celebrate his new release, Bob is running a one day promotion today (11/22/22) where you can get the Kindle ebook version of The Doctor’s Wife for FREE. You do NOT need to sign up for Kindle Unlimited or anything like that. Just visit the book’s Amazon page on your browser and click to “purchase” the Kindle version for $0.00. From there you can read the digital version through the included Kindle reader on the browser or, if you have a Kindle or the Kindle app installed on your phone or tablet, you can download it to your device.
If you’re like me, you’ll get the free ebook version and want to pick up a physical copy of the book for your library. At $7.99 for a paperback copy, why not?
If you want even more of Bob’s work, you definitely want to also check out his magnum opus, The Assassin’s Doctor: The Life and Letters of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd:
At over 380 pages, this book is a detailed biography of Dr. Mudd while also containing transcriptions of almost every primary source document you could want relating to the doctor. It’s only $12.99 for a physical copy which is quite a steal, if you ask me. Even better, however, is that it appears that the same free promotion for the Sarah Frances Mudd ebook is also going on for The Assassin’s Doctor. So there’s no reason not to pick up this temporarily free ebook all about Dr. Mudd.
Don’t delay, the free ebook promotion will only last today, Tuesday, November 22, 2022.
