See my review on this blog of Too Close tot he Sun"
"No Ordinary Time" takes its title from the inauguration of FDR and a phrase Eleanor used. It hones in a specific era, the home front of our country immediately before World War II up to the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) as chapter by chapter unfolds the personalities, ideals, intents and guile of the two main characters, FDR and Eleanor. Accompanying this in an excellent narrative of the attitudes of the population of this country, the influence of Stalin and Churchill and the WWII era with historical perspectives and analysis that contribute to understanding how the country elected FDR so many times. It has taken me too long to post it here to my reading blog but reflecting I still savor its reading.
Although FDR is known as the father of the New Deal, an initiator of socialist programs
Although I wrote eight pages of notes to the book, I will not go into that depth here. Suffice it to be a first class 5 star ***** read, a keeper, excellent scholarly historical non fiction.
