9780786188659: Kindred Souls: Library Edition

For fifteen years, Eleanor Roosevelt and her handsome doctor, David Gurewitsch, were friends--traveling, entertaining, and eventually buying a townhouse together in Manhattan. Their friendship has always intrigued historians, but not much was known about it. David kept detailed journals and took thousands of photos, but he never publicly discussed their time together. Then, in 2003, the woman who had married into this complicated relationship, Edna Gurewitsch, opened up, revealing their story--and hers--for the first time. Filled with the author's own memories and observations and a selection of passionate letters from Mrs. Roosevelt, her book also gives a fresh insider's look at the influence the former first lady continued to wield on world events long after the death of her husband. Kindred Souls is a unique, intimate look at three friends and their extraordinary lives.

From AudioFile:

After the death of FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt developed an extraordinary friendship with her physician, David Gurewitsch. They shared their lives, friends, and dreams, and for the last years of her life, a house. Edna Gurewitsch, David's wife, tells the story of their friendship through his diaries, medical charts, and Mrs. Roosevelt's letters, all set within the context of events that affected both of them. Nothing is left out of their interactions with politicians, famous people, and the Roosevelt family. Bernadette Dunne reads this fascinating biography with an even pace and little characterization. Most extraordinary is the realization of how much more Mrs. Roosevelt accomplished after the death of FDR. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
