"A novel about the extraordinary partnership between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and civil rights activist Mary McLeod Bethune--an unlikely friendship that changed the world, from the New York Times bestselling authors of the Good Morning America Book Club pick The Personal Librarian. The daughter of formerly enslaved parents, Mary McLeod Bethune refuses to back down as white supremacists attempt to thwart her work. She marches on as an activist and an educator, and as her reputation grows she becomes a celebrity, revered by titans of business and recognized by U.S. Presidents. Eleanor Roosevelt herself is awestruck and eager to make her acquaintance. Initially drawn together because of their shared belief in women's rights and the power of education, Mary and Eleanor become fast friends confiding their secrets, hopes and dreams-and holding each other's hands through personal and professional strife. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt is elected president, the two women begin to collaborate more closely, particularly as Eleanor moves toward her own agenda separate from FDR, a consequence of the devastating discovery of her husband's secret love affair. Eleanor becomes a controversial First Lady for her outspokenness, particularly on civil rights. And when she receives threats because of her strong ties to Mary, it only fuels the women's desire to fight together for justice and equality. This is the story of two different, yet equally formidable, passionate, and committed women, and the way in which their singular friendship helped form the foundation for the modern civil rights movement"--… (mer)

It seems that the reviews of "The First Ladies" were all over the place. Some loved it, others thought it was a bit boring and redundant. I fell somewhere in between. The idea of having two authors, (Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray) with each focusing on one of the main characters was a unique idea. There was definitely a fair amount of research put into this project. The chapters were laid out in such a way, that each character received equal time to have their thoughts and feelings expressed. With that being said, halfway through the book, it lost its luster. The chapters became boring and redundant. Hence, the 3-star rating. ( )

Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary McLeod Bethune. Their friendship and work for equal rights ( )
  Rosemary1973 | Jan 23, 2024 |
A factionalized story about the relationship between Eleanore Roosevelt and Mary Bisoon. This is a relationship between a black woman and a very famous white woman. It is about their work but it is more about a friendship. ( )

This book is well-researched and while a novel, gives anyone who is a student of history and the First Ladies a glimpse into the rich friendship between Mary McLeod Bethune and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Authors Benedict and Murray do a great job of comparing and contrasting the views of both women as they recorded their diaries on same days and events, and other days. This is a book you can't put down. ( )
  prudencegoodwife | Jan 17, 2024 |
An engaging and insightful historical fiction novel that provides insight into world and thought of Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary McLeod Bethune both how they thought and worked independently plus they worked and supported each other for causes they both believed in. Yes, the authors omit they had to insert some facts but overall the book provided a true insight into the work these women accomplished. ( )
