Summary:

No Ordinary Time is a monumental work, a brilliantly conceived chronicle of
one of the most vibrant and revolutionary periods in the history of the United
States. With an extraordinary collection of details, Goodwin masterfully weaves
together a striking number of story lines--Eleanor and Franklin's marriage and
remarkable partnership, Eleanor's life as First Lady, and FDR's White House and
its impact on America as well as on a world at war. Goodwin effectively melds
these details and stories into an unforgettable and intimate portrait of Eleanor and
Franklin Roosevelt and of the time during which a new, modern America was
born.
