Eleanor And Hick : The Love Affiar That Shaped a First Lady Hardback
by Susan Quinn
In 1932, as her husband assumed the presidency, Eleanor Roosevelt entered the claustrophobic, duty-bound existence of the First Lady with dread.
A lifeline came to her in the form of a feisty campaign reporter for the Associated Press: Lorena Hickok.
Over the next 30 years, until Eleanor's death, the two women carried on an extraordinary relationship: They were, at different points, lovers, confidantes, professional advisors and caring friends.
This is their story, told with warmth and charm. An important and utterly fascinating book.
