Assigned to cover Eleanor Roosevelt for the Associated Press, feisty journalist Lorena Hickok became the first lady's advisor, confidante, and intimate partner. Eleanor and Hick explores this relationship through the thoughtful and affectionate letters shared between the two women. It offers a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at Eleanor's life in (as well as away from) the White House and her growing importance as a political activist. This deftly researched and emotionally nuanced history/ biography is extremely compelling—a caring presentation not only of Eleanor and Hick, but of other influential people in these two remarkable women's professional and personal lives.
