5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into the private life of Franklin Roosevelt, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I went to see the film, Hyde Park on the Hudson, not knowing what it was about and found out it was partly about the visit of King Edward VIII and Queen Elizabeth to America before the Second World War. It was based on the story of the relationship between Franklin Roosevelt and Margaret Suckley, as revealed in her diaries discovered after her death. This made me want to read the actual book, which consists of extracts from her diaries and letters between herself and Franklin. The book is fascinating, revealing details about Franklin's life in Washington and at home. It is amazing how Franklin could juggle the demands of the presidency with a private life away from the spotlight - so different from today, exemplified by the fact he was always photographed in public without his wheelchair, and that the only two photographs of him in it were taken by Margaret.
