But Franklin and Lucy do meet again, and again they fall in love. As he prepares to run for an unprecedented third term and lead America into war, Franklin turns to Lucy for the warmth and unconditional approval Eleanor is unable to give.
Ellen Feldman brings a novelist's insight to bear on the connection of these three compelling characters. Drawing on recently discovered materials to re-create the voice of a woman who played a crucial but silent role in the Roosevelt presidency, Lucy is a remarkably sensitive exploration of the private lives behind a public marriage.
"Lucy Mercer Rutherford is a wonderful creation." (New York Times Book Review)

I found this book fascinating and very worthwhile. It felt like you were right in the room witnessing everything that went on between these two people, Lucy and Franklin. I learned alot about that era of history at the same time. Beautiful book and beautifully read.
