"My brother killed Abraham Lincoln. That is my weight of shame. While he remained at large, I was held captive in my home."

Asia Booth Clarke was 30 years old and pregnant with her first child when Union soldiers stormed her Maryland home in search of her brother. John Wilkes Booth's baby sister had grown up in one of America's notoriously troubled, but spectacularly acclaimed, acting families. When Johnny's firebrand ideology left the nation in mourning and the Booth family under a dark cloud of accusation, it was Asia who bore the brunt.

Booth's Sister was inspired by Asia Booth Clarke's personal memoirs. Author, historical scholar, and storyteller Jane Singer has masterfully imagined the family dynamics and intimate details that led to one of America's most fateful crimes.
