Eleanor also may have had problems with intimacy and closeness Her involvement in causes and political work and role as First Lady meant Hick hardly ever had Eleanor all to herself They took trips together vacationed together and spent special holidays together But it was never enough for HickEleanor had a great heart and felt deeply and fought courageously for the underdog the powerless the marginal she championed euality for all This book also shows how Hick s reporting and WPA work brought to attention the grinding poverty and dangerous workplaces the starvation and health crisis across the country during the Depression Hick was also a competent eader for Democratic WomenThis book shows how these strong women so disimilar in background and class impacted FDR s policies and improved the ives of AmericansI recieved a free ebook through First to Read in exchange for a fair and unbiased review I found Eleanor and Hick The Love Affair That Shaped a First Lady to be somewhat underwhelming I guess with a subtitle ike that I expected there to be tons focus on the actual relationshiplove affair between Eleanor and Hick but you don t really get that I mean you get some but a ot of this book is focused on what these two adies did separately as opposed to togetherI also would have iked it if this book included of the Buried letters that Hick and Eleanor wrote each other I know that this book mentions that Hick destroyed some of theetters particularly the ones that she herself wrote but I would ve iked to read at east ONE of the etters word for word In fact I think that this book would have benefited greatly if it was told in as somewhat epistolary style but it wasn tFor the most part I found Eleanor and Hick to "be somewhat engaging But there were parts of it that dragged on a bit I did ike the emphasis placed on " somewhat engaging But there were parts of it that dragged on a bit I did ike the emphasis placed on since I feel ike she was just a tad interesting than Eleanor or rather it s easier to connect with Hick because you get a better feel of her rather than of Eleanor In the end I still recommend Eleanor and Hick Lorena Hickok was Eleanor Roosevelt s very close and personal friend In the end I still recommend Eleanor and Hick Lorena Hickok was Eleanor Roosevelt s very close and personal friend cannot even begin to imagine what it must have been ike to gay in 1930 s and 40 s it must be hard enough in our somewhat enlightened times Add to that imagine being a esbian and being the First Lady Before reading this I had heard the rumors that Eleanor Roosevelt may have been a esbian and I wanted to earn about that part of her ife This book was fascinating but also slow moving and boring at times I get that the author did tons of research for this book but she could of slimmed it down a ittle It was just information overload I didn t "need an entire chapter about friends who are never mentioned again Overall it was informative but it was also "an entire chapter about friends who are never mentioned again Overall it was informative but it was also A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, little on the dull side I m of two minds about this book I appreciatedearning about Lorena Hickok s considerable positive contribution to FDR s years as President and as a tremendously affirmative support for Eleanor Roosevelt However I did get bogged down with the breadth and detail of FDR s political career within which I had to sometimes search for the nuggets of the story of Hick and Eleanor to the point that I found myself avoiding that damn book and making myself groaningly finish it The first half fulfills the promise of its title and moves along briskly and well Hisk and Eleanor met on the Democratic convention trail and gradually Hick became Eleanor s sidekick and personal reporter Eventually she was asked to move into the White House and found work through Eleanor which kept them in close company Hick had grown up in abject poverty and her attitudes helped Eleanor to see America s Depression devastated people as those who needed action and in turn influence her husband in governmen. A warm intimate account of the The Shadow Reader love between Eleanor Roosevelt and reporter Lorena Hickok a relationship that over than three decades transformed both women'sives and empowered them to play significant roles in one of the most tumultuous periods in American historyIn 1932 as her husband assumed the presidency Eleanor Roosevelt entered the claustrophobic duty bound existence of the First Lady with dread By that time she had put her deep disappointment in her marriage behind her and developed an independent Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies life now threatened by the public role she would be forced to play Aifeline came to her in the form of a feisty campaign reporter for the Associated Press Lorena Hickok Over the next thirty years until Eleanor’s death the two women carried on an extraordinary relationship They were at diffe. ,

Opular at that time Eleanor and Hick had someone to talk with together and to bond with When it turned to ove well good for them They sure didn t have it at home I enjoyed the book but it was slow in many spots but overall I got a The Power Of A Choice lot of history bits here and there even in the slow zones This is going to be one of the blockbuster popular histories of the fall certainly to be featured on NPR and other big book promotersike that so I was super excited to get an advanced copy But unfortunately I was uite et down because the book was actually kinda flat and I was disappointed in it though I ve thought about it for several days and I still can t totally put my finger on why it seemed so meh I am slightly crazy about Eleanor Roosevelt who is America s greatest politician who never was and I ve always just accepted in my post everything child privilege that she was A Lesbian with some dumb cheating man who wouldn t give her a divorce and that her partner was named Lorena Hickok and that s that But the book despite its stated thesis of documenting this great ove affair kinda made me uestion what I d grown up knowing about Eleanor Roosevelt instead Technically the book was completely fine The historical methodology totally fine for pop history the writing unexciting but fine the balance of the twin biographies fine There s nothing structurally wrong with the bookI think some of the problem is actually the subject matter and the historic materials at hand While the author avishes you with uotes from both sides of their 30 years of correspondence it is just plain hard to sueeze too much spice and sex from the Eleanor Hick etters they are decidedly not The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right like James Joyce to his mistress here The evidence presented supports a romantic affair with aot of XOXO etters U Haul daydreaming about getting a sweet cottage together a special friendship ring and some cozy sleepovers in Eleanor s sweet gayborhood apartment where we can infer human beings did natural human being things but it s striking how uickly it faded out to just correspondence about their political work and their health far from the devoted ifetime romance the blurb promises you It s also pretty plain this was an unbalanced Monsieur Pain love Hickoved Eleanor than she was oved in return Hick uit her hard won AP reporting job and devoted most of her ife to her pushed away other nice women she could have built a emotionally satisfying ife with Eleanor actively courted other emotional intimacies and didn t give up anything that I could notice I have been forced by this book in short to come to terms with the knowledge that Eleanor Roosevelt was a Bad Lesbian and I m not very happy about it Which is fine that s history for you always crushing your history crushes but the blurb promised me a vivid portrait of ove and I got something ike a depressing series of blurry paparazzi photos of Eleanor taking a good woman for granted I do think the author however has put together the most complete set of stories about Hick yet published including fresh interviews with people who knew her in her final years which is probably the main value of the book I didn t know anything but the bare facts about Hick before reading this and I now am kinda crazy about her this grumpy ooking woman with a fat cigarette hanging out of her mouth just doing her thing working hard for 30 years and never being sure if she d gotten a single position after being with Eleanor on her talent and without nepotism There s also some decent research on the other esbian couples Eleanor and Hick hung out with though I d have lesbian couples Eleanor and Hick hung out with though I d have work on them if only because it s comforting to know Eleanor and Hick knew other esbians in what we d consider today healthy relationships and fights the general historical misconception of ye olden days being nonstop Patrick the Wolf Boy, Volume 1 lonely closeted homosexual tragedy So get the book if you want to read about the beginning of women s involvement in Democratic party politics and a particular badassesbian journalist but temper your expectations of a great inspirational romance because it s just not here My copy of this book was free from the publisher for the purposes of review The first half of this was really good Very readable and engaging I d heard of Hick before but had no idea she and Eleanor had such a close probably romantic possible sexual relationshipThen my ibrary oan expired and I had to wait to read the second half so some of my waning interest is probably due to that but also the second half of the book was about Eleanor and Hick as individuals Which was still interesting but wasn "T What The Book " what the book had other close special friends and by the end of the book I just wasn t sure that Hick was special than any other But then maybe the book wasn t trying to say she was just that it WAS a special relationship DNF at 112 pages This was interesting and well written and I commend the author for talking about the racism and anti semitism both women engaged in That being said it was really frustrating me and making me uite frankly not care about either of them so I had to sto. Ed from the nation’s poorest areas for the WPA and Eleanor used these reports to Glitter Bomb (A Scrapbooking Mystery, lobby her husband for New Deal programs Hick encouraged Eleanor to turn their freuentetters into her popular and Il morto di Maigret longasting syndicated column My Day and to befriend the female journalists who became her champions When Eleanor’s tenure as First Lady ended with FDR's death Hick pushed her to continue to use her popularity for good advice Eleanor took by eading the UN’s postwar Human Rights Commission At every turn the bond these women shared was grounded in their determination to better their troubled world Deeply researched and told with great warmth Eleanor and Hick is a vivid portrait of ove and a revealing ook at how an unlikely romance influenced some of the most conseuential years in American history. Eleanor and HickT Eleanor as well gained incredible self confidence with Hick s mentoring her newspaper column My Day and eventual books resulted from Hick s praise of their etters to one another Hick offered her heart time and insight unconditionally to Eleanor for thirty years The politics of the times do reverberate with a degree of d j vu the comparisons of slumping economies and jobless people being a critical issue in 1932 and today Some points uotes and contrasts Hick s travels through Georgia Florida and North and South Carolina Globalization: A Multi-Dimensional System, Third Edition led her to conclude that the rural South had never progressed beyond slaveabor When their slaves were taken away they proceeded to establish a system of peonage that was as close to slavery as it possibly could be and included Whites as well as Blacks That s all the tenant farmer is a slaveThe complaint of Governor Talmadge that federal funds were Billionaires Contract Engagement (Kings of the

thus perpetuating a horrid cycle for poor underpaid and underemployed workers In 1934 the Works Progress Administration was formed with useful projects This program of the New Deal provided than eight million jobs to hungry and needy Americans while enormously improving the country s infrastructure transforming its public spaces and INSPIRING A WAVE OF CREATIVITY IN THE ARTS In Roosevelt s third campaign for President when Europe needed help in WWII he ran against Wendell Willkie Republican who was prone to making wild accusations at one point he accused FDR of telephoning Hitler and Mussolini and urging them to sell Czechoslovakia down the river at MunichHick wrote Eleanor Golly he must be tough to cover So much extemporaneous speaking and always a chance to deny he said a thing or say he was misinterpretedFDR accused Willkie of using totalitarian techniues repeating falsehoods over and over until people believed them The majority of Americans will not be scared by this blitzkrieg of verbal incendiary bombs Obviously the American people of those times had a good barometer of what to fear Now Eleanor continued to accrue a huge fan base while Hick waseft to her own devices In many ways I came to dislike Eleanor Roosevelt even as I believe I understood her Having suffered the terrible oss of both parents at a very early age and harsh upbringing by her grandmother Eleanor s behaviour showed evidence of disassociation Intimate relationships caused her to distance coldly yet be remarkably and almost na vely generously oving to strangers who had no vested interest After Hick oved her and Eleanor grew in confidence the First Lady shrugged off intimacy and moved on to an adoring public and volunteer work Eleanor was a terrible mother distant and really neglectful with their health that original trauma may have interfered with her ability to truly bond because of the fear triggered by oss She compartmentalized her ife which is how she could be so effective in so many different areas but appalling in the ones closest to her She was compelled to rescue so was a remarkable advocate in the ones closest to her She was compelled to rescue so was a remarkable advocate public personage as Hicks described her Access to the person was very imited and that took its toll on Lorena Hickok So worth the read Lots to contemplate Lots of detail well researched and well written 4 stars 3 stars or "4 stars I honestly don t know As evidence of a ove story "stars I honestly don t know As evidence of a ove story a Changing Time In Our Country time in our country history strong four stars Otherwise it is rather dull Audiobook I found my mind wandering it was easy to The West Transformed: A History of Western Civilization, Vol 1, to 1715 lose track of the narrative becauseittle action takes place I m glad I read it just not happy I own it and can t sell it Thank you First Reads for the opportunity to read Eleanor and Hick This book chronicles the ove between two women and the influence that the First Lady had during the depression the war and the years following the war I doubt that Mrs Roosevelt would have been as effective without the stimulus of Ms Hickock And the focus of the book really is on Hick s influence rather than on the relationship between the two women So the subtitle is a bit misleading No matter This is a tale that needed to be told Eleanor and Hick by Susan uinn is a book I picked up from the ibrary I enjoyed this book and earned a ot of history from it too When it talked about the history of Hick s ife it is so sad and yet if she ived today this would not have happened Sure she might have had a drunk father that beat her but she couldn t ive own her own as a young teenShe also wouldn t have to work at different places to feed herself Hick had a hard ife a total opposite of Eleanor I also The Anathema Cell learned about Eleanor sife Learning of all of FDR s indiscretions which is probably just what most men of power did is still disturbing Both women were very independant and smart Something that wasn t Rent points overs confidantes professional advisors and caring friends They couldn't have been different Eleanor had been raised in one of the nation’s most powerful political families and was introduced to society as a debutante before marrying her distant cousin Franklin Hick as she was known had grown up poor in rural South Dakota and worked as a servant girl after she escaped an abusive home eventually becoming one of the most respected reporters at the AP Her admiration drew the buttoned up Eleanor out of her shell and the two uickly fell in ove For the next thirteen years Hick had her own room at the White House next door to the First Lady These fiercely compassionate women
