About the Author
Susan Wittig Albert is the New York Times bestselling author of over 50 adult novels and works of nonfiction, as well as 60+ novels for young adults. She and her husband Bill Albert live in the Texas Hill Country. She is the founder and president of the Story Circle Network and a member of the Texas Institute of Letters.
"Albert captures Hick's spirit with energetic prose, painting a colorful picture of her fascinating life together with and apart from Eleanor. Although this memoir is fictional, the author draws upon thousands of personal letters, first-person accounts by others, and further research to present a compelling possible narrative of the relationship between Eleanor and Hick. Albert's illuminating afterword adds important context to her narrative choices, and a comprehensive bibliography will encourage additional research. This warm, extensively researched novel will entrance readers and inspire them to look further into the lives of two extraordinary women."- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Susan Wittig Albert has, with imagination and deep knowledge of the historical record, supplied the missing pieces of the love story of Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok. Here is everything we wish we knew. I couldn't put it down. -Leila Rupp, Professor of Feminist Studies, UC Santa Barbara, author of A Desired Past: A Short History of Same-Sex Love in America
