I like her down to earth writing. She has written about ordinary things and left some things unsaid which is fine. She came from a very reserved background so it's to be expected. Her childhood was during a very different time than today. That she did so much for others is evidence of that upbringing.
After reading this book, I visited Hyde Park. I went first to her house at Val-Kill before I went to the Big House and Library. I recommend a visit to everyone because I believe you get a real feel for her there. At Val-Kill it's like she has just stepped out for a moment, but will be back.
I recommend this book to everyone. Editors give background information before each selection for those who weren't alive during the time. Eleanor did not go into great detail in her columns as, of course, her readers at the time would know what she was talking about.
I wish the editor could fix this - ten dollars is far too much for such a badly done Kindle edition.

This book reminded me a lot of Laura Ingalls Wilder's farm woman columns. Same "slice of life" writing. A look at a by-gone era.Published 13 months ago by Amazon Customer
No real plot, Which makes the reading a little less interesting though it is meant to be a collection of memoirs, so if that is what you're looking for you may enjoy it.Published 13 months ago by A.Aue
