For 15 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 is known about it. David kept detailed journals and took thousands of photos, but he never publicly discussed their time together.
For the first time, Edna Gurewitsch, David’s wife, is opening up and revealing their story, and hers, after she married into their complicated relationship. Edna also gives a fresh, insider’s look at Mrs. Roosevelt as she continued to influence world events, and the book is filled with passionate letters from Mrs. Roosevelt.
