The daughter of formerly enslaved parents, Mary McLeod Bethune became an educator, a businesswoman, and a legendary Civil Rights activist. Her extraordinary courage and success caught the attention of a young Eleanor Roosevelt, and the two forged a friendship based on a shared passion for education and women's rights. This historical novel dramatizes the personal relationship between Bethune and Roosevelt—a bond that would influence the First Lady's political agenda and open doors at the capitol for Bethune. It's an alternating tale of two formidable women who, though they came from very different backgrounds, shared a passion for justice and equality that would change the trajectory of our nation.
