About this product
- DescriptionFranklin Dela and Elear Roosevelt's marriage is one of the most celebrated and scrutinized partnerships in presidential history. It raised eyebrows in their lifetimes and has only become more controversial since their deaths. From FDR's lifelong romance with Lucy Mercer to Elear's purported lesbianism - and many scandals in between - the American public has never tired of speculating about the ties that bound these two headstrong individuals. Some claim that Elear sacrificed her personal happiness to accommodate FDR's needs; others claim that the marriage was thing more than a gracious facade for political convenience. No one has told the full story until w. Franklin, especially, knew what he owed to Elear, who was t so much behind the scenes as heavily engaged in them. Their relationship was the product of FDR and Elear's conscious efforts - a partnership that they created according to their own ambitions and needs. In this dramatic and vivid narrative, set against the great upheavals of the Depression and World War II, Rowley paints a portrait of a tender lifelong companionship, born of mutual admiration and compassion.
