About this title


Previously unpublished letters and diaries are used to portray the life of Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt and to assess the mark that she left as first lady

From the Back Cover:

"Marvelously full-blooded, engagingly written."

"An endlessly engrossing book, at once of historical and human importance... Morris's indefatigably busy camera catches everything that is catchable. The result is a narrative that one will want to return to and mull over, conscious of the hundred and one details that might have been missed the first time around, and with a reader's freedom to speculate that Morris admirably denies herself."
--R.W.B. Lewis, The Washington Post

"Morris excels at putting Edith in her place in charge of the First Family at a heady time in American history."

"A splendid biography... One reads on, intrigued by the character that emerges."
--Chicago Sun-Times

"This biography represents craftsmanship of the highest order."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"A story as fascinating and well-written as a novel."
--Worcester Telegram

"A superb life story enchantingly told."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"A warmly vivid account of a refined, intelligent, and gracious lady and a contribution to the history of an era."
--David H. Burton, St. Joseph's University
