That Time Eleanor Roosevelt Disappeared for 10 Days

Q&A with Sarah Durn / "She Was There" Series

"Recommended... Roosevelt's legacy of activism and mettle continue to inspire."  


"Captures the appeal of a pathbreaking first lady."

Publishers Weekly

"The author’s ability to combine place with subject is unsurpassed here.... While the work centers on Eleanor’s travels and contributions, it also serves as a mini-history of this theater of World War II.... This work provides numerous details and the context needed to understand the trials and difficulties of Eleanor Roosevelt’s historic undertaking. Readers interested in World War II or women’s roles in the war effort will likely appreciate this enjoyable read." —Maria Ashton-Stebbings, Library Journal
