When AP political reporter Lorena Hickok—Hick—is assigned to
cover Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1932 campaign, the two women
become deeply involved. Their relationship begins with
mutual romantic passion, matures through stormy periods of
enforced separation and competing interests, and warms into
an enduring, encompassing friendship documented by 3300 letters.
Set during the chaotic years of the Great Depression, the
New Deal, and the Second World War, Loving Eleanor reveals
Eleanor Roosevelt as a complex, contradictory, and entirely
human woman who is pulled in many directions by her
obligations to her husband and family and her role as the
nation's First Lady. Hick is revealed as an accomplished
journalist, who, at the pinnacle of her career, gives it all
up for the woman she loves. Then, as Eleanor is transformed
into Eleanor Everywhere, First Lady of the World, Hick must
create her own independent, productive life. Loving Eleanor
is a profoundly moving novel that illuminates a relationship
we are seldom privileged to see, celebrating the depth and
durability of women's love.
