Product Details

Praise

"Marvelously full-blooded, engagingly written."
Newsweek

"An endlessly engrossing book, at once of historical and human importance… Morris’s indefatigably busy camera catches everything that is catchable. The result is a narrative that one will want to return to and mull over, conscious of the hundred and one details that might have been missed the first time around, and with a reader’s freedom to speculate that Morris admirably denies herself."
–R.W.B. Lewis, The Washington Post

"Morris excels at putting Edith in her place in charge of the First Family at a heady time in American history."
Newsweek

"A splendid biography… One reads on, intrigued by the character that emerges."
Chicago Sun-Times

"This biography represents craftsmanship of the highest order."
The Christian Science Monitor

"A story as fascinating and well-written as a novel."
Worcester Telegram

"A superb life story enchantingly told."
Richmond Times-Dispatch

"A warmly vivid account of a refined, intelligent, and gracious lady and a contribution to the history of an era."
–David H. Burton, St. Joseph’s University
