Loving Eleanor é When AP political reporter Lorena Hickok Hick is assigned to cover Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1932 campaign the two women become deeply involved Their relationship begins with mutual romantic passion matures through stormy periods of enforced separation and competing interests and warms into an enduring encompassing friendship documented by 3300 letters Se. Lorena Hick Hickok is assigned to cover Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1932 political campaign This is the start of a love story that would last for years despite long periods of separation and the fact that Eleanor Roosevelt was to become The First Lady of United States But this love story could not last Madame that Hick so lovingly called Eleanor could never become someone anonymous again even after FDR deathLoving Eleanor is a fictional memoir based on the relationship between Lorena Hickock and Eleanor Roosevelt When I first saw this book was my reaction is this about Eleanor Roosevelt And strangely I was correct I do have an interest in FDR and that could very well be why my first reaction was thinking this was about his wifeThe book starts off with a funeral Eleanor Roosevelt's and a grief stricken Hick isn't there despite being invited She can't handle it and don't want them all to see how Eleanor's death has broken her And now she wonders what to do with all the letters that she has after Eleanor There are vultures out there that would do anything to get their hands on them In the end she decides to have the letters sealed and not open until 10 years after her death In this book she decides also to write their story and having it sealed as wellSusan Wittig Albert has written a poignant tale of a doomed love story A talented journalist that falls in love with the wife of the future president At first their love burns hot but as the years go by their love grows perhaps not colder but the hot passion is not there any But they still love each other dearly But Eleanor's would become a personage an icon The First Lady of the World She was no longer a privet person from the day FDR become president They would both fall in love with other people but they would until Eleanor died always be in touch And for Hick would Eleanor always be the oneThis is a story that touched my heart I found that both Hick and Eleanor came alive in this story But Loving Eleanor is also deeply tragic to read As Eleanor so pointedly says in the book that they are; Like Little moons orbiting around a giant planet That is the cost of being around FDR And if FDR feels that you are a threat then he will remove the threat That sounds very wrong and threatening But what he did was reward anyone around Eleanor if he felt that the person would be harmful to the presidency Marry away someone like he did with the trooper that Eleanor fell in love with or in Hick's case he gives her a job that took her around the country and by that separate Hick from Eleanor I could feel reading this that Hick retelling their story is pained with the knowledge of what happened and writing she sees now all the signs that in the end would lead to their breakup as a coupleI especially liked the fact that despite that the book's story takes place during several years when much happened in America; the Great Depression and WW2 did the book never feel too heavy to read and it never felt too bogged down with too much history It was well written and well researched The story flowed easily on and it was hard to put the book downHick never wrote a memoir about their life but this book has through extended research given us a fictional version of their life togetherFor information read The story behind the book and the extensive research that went into the projectI want to thank the publisher for providing me through NetGalley with a free copy for an honest reviewRead this review and others on A Bookaholic Swede READ ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub Å Susan Wittig Albert

Unfortunately I don't have a positive review of this book The author's decision to write in the first person as if Lorena Hickok were speaking struck a false unbelievable note from start to finish At times it seemed juvenile as if a character portrayed by an actor in a historic village were speaking to schoolchildren Although the book covers some of the most riveting dangerous and tumultuous years in American history there is a lack of depth Ditto the central forbidden and taboo relationship between Eleanor Roosevelt and AP reporter Lorena Hickok I felt distant almost no emotion as I read this booknot when bombs are dropped not when people die not when affairs end not when the dog dies The use of italics for emphasis especially when a hardboiled AP writer was supposedly writing was an odd editorial choice for an adult book I finished this with great effort for a book club read
