Review: Eleanor and Franklin

User Review  - Janika - Goodreads

Written by a close friend of Eleanor's in the 1970s. Candid look at both characters based on Eleanor's private letter collection. Fascinating material, though biographer's writing style and assumption of knowledge (historical, cultural references) on the part of the reader seems very old fashioned. Read full review
