The final volume in the definitive biography of America's greatest first lady.

Blanche Wiesen Cook's biographies of Eleanor Roosevelt have been hailed as the essential portraits of a woman who towers over the twentieth century. This third and final volume takes us through World War II, FDR's death, the founding of the UN, the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and Eleanor Roosevelt's passing in 1962. It follows the arc of war and the evolution of a marriage, as the first lady realized the cost of maintaining her principles even as the country and her husband were not prepared to adopt them. Yet these years - the war years - made Eleanor Roosevelt the person she became: a leader, a visionary, and a woman who has inspired generations of Americans to seek a decent future for all people.
