Super interesting. I had no idea what an amazing woman Eleanor Roosevelt was. I enjoyed this book a lot.

"Hazel Rowley's revelatory biography of a marriage, Franklin and Eleanor, explores a famous couple who defied convention. Rowley charts the evolution of the Roosevelt union from a standard-issue high society alliance to something we don't even have a label for — maybe "semi-open marriage" comes closest."
