A novel about the extraordinary partnership between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and civil rights activist Mary McLeod Bethune—a forbidden friendship that changed the world, from the New York Times bestselling authors of The Personal Librarian. The daughter of formerly enslaved parents, Mary McLeod Bethune refuses to back down as white supremacists attempt to thwart her work. She marches on as an activist and an educator, and as her reputation grows, she becomes a celebrity, renowned in the Black community, revered by titans of business, and recognized by U.S. Presidents. Eleanor Roosevelt herself is awestruck and eager to make her acquaintance. Upon meeting, Mary and Eleanor bond over their shared belief in women’s rights and the power of education, and Mary quickly becomes a friend to the sheltered Eleanor, helping her better understand the plight of Black Americans. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt is elected president, the two women begin to collaborate more closely, particularly as Eleanor moves toward her own agenda separate and apart from FDR, a consequence of the devastating discovery of her husband’s secret love affair. Eleanor becomes a controversial First Lady for her outspokenness, particularly on civil rights. And when she receives death threats because of her strong ties to Mary, it only fuels the women’s desire to fortify their alliance and further the work they have started, fighting for justice and equality. Told from two perspectives, this is the story of two different, yet equally formidable, passionate, and committed women, and the way in which — hand in hand — Mary and Eleanor forged a singular friendship as they helped form the foundation for the modern civil rights movement.
