  • "A comprehensive narrative of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his relationship with the various women in his life including Lucy Mercer, with whom he had a long-time affair."
  • "It was in FDR's relationship with women, particularly with Lucy Rutherfurd--that most vividly bring to light the human being that was this towering statesman. This is a look at the private life of a leader who continues to fascinate scholars and the general public alike."
  • "In Franklin and Lucy, acclaimed author and historian Joseph E. Persico explores FDR's romance with Lucy Rutherfurd (which was far deeper and lasted much longer than was previously acknowledged). Persico also shows how FDR's infidelity as a husband contributed to Eleanor's eventual transformation from a repressed Victorian to perhaps the greatest American woman of her century; how the shaping hand of FDR's strong-willed mother helped to imbue him with the resolve to overcome personal and public adversity throughout his life; and how other women around FDR, including his "surrogate spouse," Missy LeHand, and his close confidante, the obscure Margaret "Daisy" Suckley, completed the world that he inhabited.--From amazon.com."
