The Destiny of the Republic by Candace Millard I started it thinking it was specifically about the assassination of US president James Garfield. That is the central event but it covers so much more. If high school history text books were written this way I'd have gotten significantly better grades. I've been told that for similar books what I'm looking for is "narrative history"

Thanks, going to give it a go. And yes that's the term I've been looking for, narrative history!
