From Publishers Weekly
This highly readable, well-researched work of feminist scholarship erases the image of the young Eleanor Roosevelt as a long-suffering, repressed wife and presents her as a strong, ever-evolving individual. Photos.

The author manages to avoid the stilted, scholarly tone I came to loath as a history major, and provides instead a highly-readable biography of a complex woman who carved her own role while supporting and advising her husband. Theirs might not have been a successful marriage in the traditional sense, but make no mistake, Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt were true partners. FDR was incredibly supportive of his wife and her friends. And Eleanor, who was certainly heartbroken when she discovered her husband's infidelity, was an straightforward and loving ally to FDR throughout his career.
I doubt we will see their likes again.
