Refusing to cave in to society’s rules, Eleanor’s exuberant style, wavering voice and lack of Hollywood beauty are fodder for the media.First Lady for thirteen years, Eleanor redefines and exploits this role to a position of power. Using her influence she champions for Jews, African Americans and women.Living through two world wars Eleanor witnesses thousands of graves, broken bodies and grieving families.

After visiting troops in the Pacific she says:“If we don’t make this a more decent world to live inI don’t see how we can look these boys in the eyes.”She defies a post war return to status quo and establishes the Universal Declaration of Human Rights within the UN.

She earns her way to being named “First Lady of the World.”The audacity of this woman to live out her own destiny challenges us to do the same. After all, it’s not about Eleanor. Her story is history. Her life shows us how to live.‘Context and Commentary’ at the start of each segment gives a brief look at the social/political status quos of the day that tested Eleanor’s integrity and challenged her perseverance.‘Reflections for the Reader’ at the end of each segment are observations and analogies using Eleanor’s life as a ‘how to’ guide for our own personal growth.Table of ContentsPart I: A Bitter BeginningContext and CommentsChapter 1 - ChildhoodChapter 2 - AdolescenceChapter 3 - MarriageChapter 4 - CrisisReflections for the ReaderPart II: AwakeningContext and CommentsChapter 5 - EmancipationChapter 6 – CompassionChapter 7 - CausesChapter 8 - WarReflections for the ReaderPart III: Political, Public and Personal StormsContext and CommentsChapter 9 - CriticsChapter 10 - RefugeChapter 11 - Blindsided By FamilyReflections for the ReaderPart IV: Life After DeathContext and CommentsChapter12 - Pragmatic Plans For PeaceChapter 13 - United Nations – An OxymoronChapter 14 - Elanor aka EleanorIncluded in the book are:Photos from the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library
