A love story that pulled me in, left me sad,amazed, and honor by the risks of the two women ,the indepedence of both women and their love for each other. Sad that Lorena was likely an untreated bi-polar person who could not have even range with her moods,which effected eleanor so deeply. I was just amazed at how Lorena traveled around the country by herself in the early 1930's and thought nothing of it. Great history. I did not want to put the book down. K.C.C.

A really beautiful and heartbreaking set of letters between Eleanor Roosevelt and her lover Lorena Hickok. It covers the period that Eleanor was in the white house and she discusses some of the politics of the time with Lorena. There is also no doubt in my mind that the two women had an affair.
