Hickok's blunt, but gossipy, way of speaking carries this tale of politics and love. It's a short, breezy historical fiction novel but has a lot to say about the relationships that are impossible to let go no matter how difficult things can be. Even if Roosevelt and Hickok's relationship is not confirmed in history, their love feels genuine here. There's also plenty of fun gossip about their contemporaries.

I guess I was spoiled for having previously read "Loving Eleanor" that was based on the same relationship Eleanor Roosevelt had with "Hick". The book came out in 2016 and gave a delightful political background along with it. For readers who have not been exposed to the intimate realtionship between Eleanor and Hick it will be a lovely read. It was an enjoyable read albeit on the fluff side.
