Interesting, but light, biography of Eleanor and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Focus was Franklin's first visit in his second summer of life and subsequent years and then their trips to Campobello Island after marriage. It is now an international park site with US and Canada, actually located in New Brunswick, Canada. Interesting if you plan to trip to Campobello.

A different perspective on the lives of two very famous Americans. It's hard to believe that the President and First Lady were allowed to spend time in such a remote place with so few amenities--like telephone!
