letters and documents from Lucy Rutherfurd’s estate that Franklin and Lucy by Joseph E Persico In Franklin and Lucy acclaimed author and historian Joseph E Persico explores FDR’s romance with Lucy Rutherfurd which was far deeper and lasted much longer than was previously acknowledged Persico’s pr Being an admirer of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and having visited Hyde Park a few times I found this book insightful and fascinating Do not read this for a political biography instead try Conrad Black’s monumental biography of Franklin Roosevelt Mr Persico tells of the warmth of FDR in his relationships with the diverse women in his life – his mother Sara Eleanor and his ‘possible’ extra marital relationships with Lucy Mercer and Marguerite Missy LeHand With Lucy Mercer he had a clandestine relationship that lasted from 1917 until his death in 1945 Even though Eleanor discovered this relationship in 1919 and forbade him to ever see Lucy Mercer again using the threat of divorce – FDR and Lucy continued seeing each other It must be remembered that both the above women became friends with FDR long before he became President In the case of Missy Lehand it was after he became paralyzed with polio This attests to the magnetism of FDR’s personality that he was able to attract such a wide range of men and women It is also shows the strength of FDR that most people in his condition would not be inclined to become President – and to be President for four consecutive terms – such was the courage of the man Mr Persico portrays Lucy Mercer as a devoted friend of FDR during all these years She was able to be a companion without making demands on him FDR knew how to relax at the end of a Presidential day and there were times when Eleanor would not let him do that Lucy Mercer and Missy could fulfill that role – like Franklin they enjoyed laughter and small talk Even though the book is entitled ‘Franklin and Lucy’ – there is on Eleanor’s personality then Lucy’s It is intriguing how this married couple gave themselves such latitude to each continue and grow in their lives Franklin gave Eleanor funds to build her own home in Hyde Park where she entertained her own diverse friends She also traveled extensively through out the US and the free world Compare Franklin’s treatment of his entourage with the way Stalin and Hitler in the same period treated their friends and family It should always be remembered that the leader of the democracies was such a tolerant and accepting personPerhaps Sara Franklin’s mother gets somewhat of a bad rap – after all she cared for and actively help raise the five children of Franklin and Eleanor neither of whom were the most devoted and competent of parents Without Sara’s continued support throughout their stormy marriage and then Franklin’s subseuent paralysis it is doubtful that he would have become PresidentThe best words on the Roosevelt marriage were by Daisy Suckley – to uote from the book p 345 – “That fact that they could not relax togetheris the tragedy of their joint lives for I believe that they had everything else in commonThey were both remarkable people – sky high above the average”

Franklin and Lucy President Roosevelt Mrs Franklin and Lucy is an extraordinary look at the private life of a leader who continues to fascinate scholars and the general public alike In focusing on Lucy Rutherfurd and the myriad women who mattered to Roosevelt Persico paints a intimate portrait than we have heretofore had o Really 25 stars for historical relevance Of course the story was an interesting one and one gets the feeling Mr Persico has done his homework in terms of combing the official and unofficial historical record But I had issues with the way he presented the story as well as the players in it This wasn't his fiction yet he introduces each and every character with his personal assessment of their physical beauty Every assessment he made about Eleanor and FDR and Lucy Mercer seemed to be grounded in an unabashed partiarchal perspective and bias His bias against Eleanor Roosevelt in just about every realm but particularly physical appeal was offensive to me He judges her worth as a wife against the apparently attractive Lucy Mercer mainly on the basis of how appealing she was to men AND how he felt she measured up to what FDR could have obtained in regard to the beauties of his time It's nauseating actually A great and world changing woman like Eleanor Roosevelt who clearly had a strong hand in FDRs success and Persico NEVER acknowledges this In fact throughout the account which I should mention does not have enough Lucy Mercer content to warrant the title at all he takes overt jabs at Eleanor Roosevelt that suggest she was a nag was unfulfilling sexually and paints Lucy Mercer as an ethereal beauty and proper lady who no man would have been able to resistIn fact this book was highly sexist in a number of ways portraying Lucy Mercer as infinitely appealing also because she catered to FDR's personal needs so much effectively or so he determines than Eleanor did or how she didn't tax his intellect or interrupt his thoughts etc Although the book is ostensibly about FDR and Lucy he spends a good amount of text on various nasty relatives' assessment of Eleanor even I feel contextualizing her own children's uotes to form a highly unflattering picture of her He makes a big play at definitively proving ER's lesbian relationships which he cannot substantiate and further seems to use these allegations in an unflattering light which I felt he was using as an argument to justify FDR's relationship with Lucy MercerI did enjoy the historical components and learned uite a lot about these people who I previously knew nothing about but I can't recommend this so called biography The writing style is sufficiently compelling but a bit old style and I felt information was presented without journalistic integrity For instance if Eleanor was reported to be one way by a friend or relative Persico would find a conflicting report that supported a less flattering view of ER He did the same with FDR The only player in this story that he seemed utterly enad with was Lucy Mercer who he spends paragraphs describing as angelic entirely ladylike with a captivating smile blah blah blah
