Historians, politicians, and readers everywhere have praised Blanche Wiesen Cook’s biography of Eleanor Roosevelt. The third and final volume takes us through World War II, FDR’s death, the founding of the UN, and Eleanor’s death in 1962. It follows the arc of war and the evolution of a marriage, as the first lady realized the cost of maintaining her principles even as the country and her husband were not prepared to adopt them.
