Critical Praise

"Ellen Feldman blends history and fiction so skillfully that it's almost impossible to know where one ends and the other begins."

——Geoffrey Ward

"Novels about the personal lives of public figures are tricky indeed, but Ellen Feldman pulls it off in her touching and sensitive re-imagination of the emotional entanglements of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and Lucy Mercer Rutherford."

——Arthur Schlesinger Jr.

"Lucy Mercer Rutherford is a wonderful creation."

——New York Times Book Review
