Wanted to share a great book I've just finished: Eleanor vs. Ike by Robin Gerber.
In spite of my conservative, somewhat Republican leanings, I thoroughly enjoyed this work of fiction. (My library had it under "science fiction"--what's up with THAT?)
The surprisingly believable premise is that Eleanor Roosevelt is drafted to run for President in 1952 when Adlai Stevenson drops dead on the convention floor. It is well researched and well written and a joy for anyone who enjoys the politics of the post-war era and/or the Roosevelts and their lives.
In the back of the book, are Gerber's notes regarding the sources of some of the happenings in the book--she takes them directly from history when she can.
Quite interesting stuff.
Gotta love libraries!
