Another great book by Doris Kearns Goodwin - a thorough and adept biography of the Roosevelts - reads like a novel.

This is a great book about Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt And their unusual partnership during the Depression and World War II. It also answers a lot of questions. What kind of parents were Franklin and Eleanor? Did Franklin choose or did the party shove him into a third term? Was Eleanor more interested in black people or was Franklin? Which was the more popular? Was Sara Delano Roosevelt European aristocracy? Which one was the best politician? This is an excellent, very well researched only primary sources were used i.e. interviews with 2 of Franklin and Eleanor's sons, grandchildren and many who knew them as well as letters, diaries and government documents. This is a very detailed book about Franklin and Eleanor. I felt like I was really there with the Roosevelts. The Depression and World War II changed the way Americans expected their government to be. During World WAr 2 large numbers of blacks were invited to the White House and huge gains were made by blacks in social integration because both Roosevelts believed that blacks were equal to whites and should be treated in every way as equals.Likewise many poor whites joined the middle class.
