FRANKLIN AND LUCY offers a window onto Franklin Delano Roosevelt's relationships with the women in his life. Behind his public role as a heroic presidential figure, Roosevelt was a very human, and thus a flawed, son, husband, and father. The behind-the-scenes glimpses of these well-known people and events offer enough drama, excitement, and historical detail to give this biography broad audience appeal. Ted Barker wisely allows the story to take center stage. His presentation is smooth and straightforward, clearly articulated, and paced to allow the listener to focus on the intriguing content. Thanks to Barker's competence as a narrator, Persico's fascinating examination of yet another dimension of FDR's life is enhanced through audio.
