THE CONFIDANTE The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America

by | Read by Ann Richardson

Biography & Memoir • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Ann Richardson presents the story of Anna M. Rosenberg, the first woman to receive the Medal of Freedom. She began her career as a confidante to FDR and later influenced Truman, Eisenhower, and LBJ. Rosenberg was a Hungarian Jewish immigrant whose abilities and intelligence turned her into a household name during WWII. Speaking with a Hungarian accent, Richardson uses vocal changes and rhythm to suggest Rosenberg's reactions while touring a concentration camp. Richardson's delivery also shows that the savvy businesswoman had a sense of humor and loved a good comeback. Richardson's performance will inspire listeners to find out more about this remarkable woman. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
