Editorial Reviews

Arthur Schlesinger
“A beautiful book—beautiful in its scholarship, insight, objectivity and candor…immense subtlety, sensibility and honesty.”
The New Yorker
“An exceptionally candid, exhaustive . . . heartrending book.”
New York Times
“The intimate chronicle of a woman and a marriage. . . . Here is one of the great and moving stories of our time—a masterpiece of vivid evocation and sympathetic understanding.”
Marya Mannes - The Atlantic
“Wholly absorbing and richly documented.”
Jean Stafford - Vogue
“So engrossing and complex that it reads like a work of fiction.”
From Barnes & Noble
Based on the former first lady's personal papers, and covering the period from her birth in 1884 to the death of her husband in 1945, this fascinating study uncovers new dimensions of a marriage that had a significant impact on the course of American history. Focusing on Eleanor, award-winning author Joseph Lash provides a rare look at how she emerged as a spirited and powerful woman in her own right during the White House years as it reveals behind-the-scenes decision making thorugh the various stages of Franklin's political career and the crises of the Depression and World War II.
