From AudioFile:

Although written for young adults, this biography has much to offer "older" adults who are interested in a broad brush portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt. Barbara Caruso's clear, straightforward narration introduces the listener to a young woman fraught with insecurities and shyness who went on to live a most extraordinary life as the "First Lady of the World." Caruso reflects Roosevelt's reserved affection for her friends, family and her colleagues and the quiet but firm resolve with which she undertook challenges and opportunities to serve. Roosevelt's fears and disappointments are presented with the same calm composure as her accomplishments, reinforcing the impression of a woman of great fortitude and quiet preserverance. J.E.M.
