AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in Roosevelt's White House, this is a compelling story of politics, personalties and love that spans one of the most turbulent decades of the twentieth century.

'Robbed of her home and job by the Great Depression, the future looks bleak for Iris McIntosh - until a chance encounter with America's indefatigable First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. Propelled into the White House's brilliant inner circle, Iris finds herself at the centre of momentous change ... and her heart torn between two men. But her loyalty lies with a third: the complicated and charismatic President Roosevelt, who will ultimately force her to question everything she believes in.

'A compelling story of politics and power, love and loss, set in one of the most exciting and cataclysmic periods of history.' (Publication summary)
