Upon Franklin Roosevelt's death in April 1945, 60-year-old Eleanor Roosevelt found herself at liberty to return to private life, but chose instead to renew her civil rights activism and humanitarian work, achieving new stature in the service of the United Nations. A winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for 1971's Eleanor and Franklin, Joseph Lash draws upon Eleanor's private papers as well as his own close friendship with the longest-serving First Lady to create this vital portrait of the bereaved Eleanor, who found new reserves of strength as she lobbied on behalf of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. "Superb.... Lash has reached the highest level of the biographer's art."—Wall Street Journal
