Summary
Historians, politicians, critics, and readers everywhere have praised Blanche Wiesen Cooks biography of Eleanor Roosevelt as the essential portrait of a woman who towers over the twentieth century. The long-awaited third and final volume takes us through World War II, FDRs death, the founding of the UN, and Eleanor Roosevelts 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. Eleanor Roosevelt continued to struggle for her core issueseconomic security, New Deal reforms, racial equality, and rescuewhen they were sidelined by FDR while he marshaled the country through war. The chasm between Eleanor and Franklin grew, and the strains on their relationship were as political as they were personal. She also had to negotiate the fractures in the close circle of influential women around her at Val-Kill, but through it she gained confidence in her own vision, even when forced to amend her agenda when her beliefs clashed with government policies on such issues as neutrality, refugees, and eventually the threat of communism. These yearsthe war yearsmade Eleanor Roosevelt the woman she became: leader, visionary, guiding light. FDRs death in 1945 changed her world, but she was far from finished, returning to the spotlight as a crucial player in the founding of the United Nations
