Narrator Kimberly Farr generally maintains the tone of an objective bystander in this examination of Eleanor Roosevelt's relationship with Lorena Hickok and later her friendship with David Gurewitsch. When reading excerpts of letters between the women or the descriptions of intimate moments in their relationship, Farr's detachment is distracting. Roosevelt was a pivotal and sometimes controversial character in the history of the twentieth century. In addition to providing insight into the characters of both women, the book provides a glimpse of the events and politics of the time.
