Compelling bio about Eleanor Roosevelt and her much-maligned mother-in-law, Sara Delano Roosevelt. The mom-in-law doesn't seem to be such a witch, afterall. ( )

This double biography of Sara Rooseveldt and her daughter-in-law Eleanor is well written and researched and thoroughly debunkes the myth of the bad mother-in-law. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312303408, Hardcover)

We think we know the story of Eleanor Roosevelt--the shy, awkward girl who would redefine the role of First Lady, becoming a civil rights activist and an inspiration to generations of young women. As legend has it, the bane of Eleanor's life was her demanding and domineering mother-in-law, Sara Delano Roosevelt. Biographers have overlooked the complexity of a relationship that had, over the years, been reinterpreted and embellished by Eleanor herself.

Through diaries, letters, and interviews with Roosevelt family and friends, Jan Pottker uncovers a story never before told. The result is a triumphant blend of social history and psychological insight--a revealing look at Eleanor Roosevelt and the woman who made her historic achievements possible.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:18:51 -0400)

An analysis of the relationship between Eleanor Roosevelt and her mother-in-law offers insight into Sara Delano Roosevelt's influence on Eleanor's achievements and Eleanor's role in the misperceptions surrounding their relationship.
