Told from Lorena Hickok's perspective, this novel is inspired by her life and by her relationship and long-term friendship with beloved Eleanor Roosevelt, the "First Lady of the World." Hickok was the AP reporter who became "First Friend" and the love of Eleanor's life. White Houses takes us behind the scenes in the Roosevelt White House, where Lorea lived, and follows Hickok's life from childhood, and then in tandem with Eleanor's, the ups and downs of being "First Friend," through the death of FDR, and finally of Eleanor.
