Praise

“A monumental biography [and] an exhilarating story, as well as undeniably melancholy one. In her relentless efforts to push American democracy to fulfill its promises, Eleanor Roosevelt was ahead of her time. . . . It’s not at all clear that we have yet caught up to her.”—Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air/NPR

“Monumental and inspirational . . . Cook skillfully narrates the epic history of the war years. . . . It’s a tribute to Cook’s rich portrait that after three enormous volumes I still wanted to know more.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Reads like the great history that it is.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Outstanding . . . A winning concluding volume in a series that does for Eleanor Roosevelt what Robert Caro has done for Lyndon Johnson.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Magisterial . . . Cook captures the headlong energy of those years perfectly. Readers will encounter in these pages an intimate, touchingly human Eleanor Rooseveltan icon they can both admire and genuinely like.”
—Christian Science Monitor

“Superb. . . Cook skillfully weaves her subject’s active and emotional life among friends and family members into the depiction of her public role.”
—Publishers Weekly , boxed review

“Highly readable and richly detailed…Cook succeeds in demonstrating how Eleanor’s political ideas regarding human rights, economic insecurity, and the plight of refugees echo today.”
—Library Journal
