No Ordinary Time

 This Pulitzer Prize for History winner  dates back to 1995 but if you love history and have not read this one you have missed one of the best on the  Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt years.  The insight that Doris Kearns Goodwin has developed in No Ordinary Time is truly riveting.   Linda Gordon writing for the Boston Globe in 2005 said it so very well. ” The Roosevelt marriage is endlessly gripping because it was so consequestial….The reader feels like a resident in the White House.”  This volume is  one of Goodwin’s very best.  You will enjoy every page. It is so relevent and the characters are so vital that you might believe that Franklin and Eleanor were alive today.
