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.

I recommend these two volumes to anyone who would like to be an educated citizen. I was saddened to find that many of the grievous problems that existed in the depression years, and the problems we face with warfare and caring for our soldiers still exist. We need another Eleanor Roosevelt. I'm hoping Hillary Clinton will be as great and compassionate as was Mrs. Roosevelt.
