A biography-in-letters of Eleanor Roosevelt, held together by a moving narrative that places each letter into it's historical perspective. We see a wonderful involvement in life by Mrs. Roosevelt, but also a sadness and loneliness from this woman known as "the nation's conscience."
This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded, sewn-in pages with a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
