"Heartachingly relevant…the Eleanor Roosevelt who
inhabits these meticulously crafted pages transcends
both first - lady history and the marriage around which
Roosevelt scholarship has traditionally pivoted." – The
Wall Street Journal

The final volume in the definitive biography of America's
greatest first lady.

Monumental and inspirational…Cook skillfully narrates the
epic history of the war years… [a] grand biography. –
The New York Times Book Review

Historians, politicians, critics, and readers everywhere
have praised Blanche Wiesen Cooks biography of Eleanor
Roosevelt as the essential portrait of a woman who
towers over the twentieth century. The third and final
volume takes us through World War II, FDRs death, the
founding of the UN, and Eleanor Roosevelts death in
1962. It follows the arc of war and the evolution of a
marriage, as the first lady realized the cost of maintaining
her principles even as the country and her husband were
not prepared to adopt them. Eleanor Roosevelt continued
to struggle for her core issues—economic security, New
Deal reforms, racial equality, and rescue—when they
were sidelined by FDR while he marshaled the country
through war. The chasm between Eleanor and Franklin
grew, and the strains on their relationship were as
political as they were personal. She also had to negotiate
the fractures in the close circle of influential women
around her at Val - Kill, but through it she gained
confidence in her own vision, even when forced to amend
her agenda when her beliefs clashed with government
policies on such issues as neutrality, refugees, and
eventually the threat of communism. These years—the
war years—made Eleanor Roosevelt the woman she
became: leader, visionary, guiding light. FDRs death in
1945 changed her world, but she was far from finished,
returning to the spotlight as a crucial player in the
founding of the United Nations.

This is a sympathetic but unblinking portrait of a marriage
and of a woman whose passion and commitment has
inspired generations of Americans to seek a decent future
for all people. Modest and self - deprecating, a moral
force in a turbulent world, Eleanor Roosevelt was unique.
