A PREMIER Readers’ Award

Premier Readers’ Award is honoured to books that receive exceptional high evaluations from Chill Readers.

Spinster Daisy Suckley, a cousin of Franklin Roosevelt, was one of a band of unconventional women close to FDR along with Frances Perkins, the architect of social security, Eleanor Roosevelt, the fiery labour organiser, and Missy LeHand, the supersecretary who was a political operative in her right.

FDR gave them careers. In turn, they ensured his presidency was stronger and bolder and more effective. But they all had their own secrets and ways of working the system. Told through Daisy's eyes, their friendships, animosities, affairs and political agendas shaped the president's terms. This is their story, the women who influenced FDR, as told by his alternative wife, Daisy.
