Summary
Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Pulitzer Prize–winning classic about the relationship between Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt, and how it shaped the nation while steering it through the Great Depression and the outset of World War II.

With an extraordinary collection of details, Goodwin masterfully weaves together a striking number of story lines—Eleanor and Franklin’s marriage and remarkable partnership, Eleanor’s life as First Lady, and FDR’s White House and its impact on America as well as on a world at war. Goodwin effectively melds these details and stories into an unforgettable and intimate portrait of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt and of the time during which a new, modern America was born.

A beautifully researched and written book about fascinating and honorable leaders who changed the course of history for the better. The narration was excellent!

I listened to an abridged audiobook, which could not do the book justice. I left it with mixed feelings, believing the author spent a lot of time justifying the behaviors of Eleanor or Franklin. She didn't need to do that. She had effectively portrayed them both so well I felt they could have been sitting down next to me. They breathed. Who could want for more in a biography?
