NO ORDINARY TIME This book offers readers a new perspective of Franklin Deleanor and Eleanor Roosevelt Most often the Roosevelts marriage is depicted as cold and aloof but here we have a most intimate portrait of their relationship coupled with a brilliant narrative of America in wartime It is truly an extraordinary account of these years These two celebrated people are presented as human rather than only as the remarkable politicians and diplomats they were Yet their instincts in world and domestic affairs are also seen clearly throughout the text They both overcame extraordinary challenges Franklins were physical Eleanors were emotional and both remade their lives out of the tragedies that befell them Both became public servants and both went on to make a difference in the world each in their own way They touched the people who knew them personally and they touched the people of the world From them people gained hope and a feeling that one could in fact overcome tragedy and trouble They had friends from all walks of life and from around the globe In this book the reader has a rare opportunity to become even more familiar with these two remarkable people No Ordinary Time fills a void in the literature about FDR and Eleanor in that it reveals their tenderness toward each other as well as their deep concerns about less fortunate people and about America in general The book also acts as a bridge between those Americans whose parents have told them about the Roosevelt era and those who know only what they read in history books Individuals who have made such a dramatic difference in this country and in the world need to be represented to the population to keep their accomplishments and their personalities alive Of their relationship Goodwin says they kept relating to one another yearning for one another Their relationship was a lot more alive than has been previously
