Amy Bloom is no stranger to historical fiction, but this is the first time she's written fiction about real people, and the result is a sensitive portrayal of a one-of-a-kind relationship. Lorena "Hick" Hickok is a successful female reporter when she moves into FDR's White House and becomes Eleanor Roosevelt's confidant, lover and dearest friend.  Bloom's writing sparkles, and she crafts an intriguing picture of both the time period and the Roosevelt family, but it's Hick herself - and her own amazing story - that really steals the show.
