Daisy Chain

Justine Gilbert


Eleanor Roosevelt was the only First Lady to refuse to live in the White House. Separated from FDR, other women surrounded him. Daisy Suckley, a cousin and lover to Franklin Roosevelt, narrates the story of those presidential years, with an illuminating retelling of a seismic era. She records the friendships, the fights and the deals made in a secret sisterhood of those who influenced and assisted a disabled President in Eleanor's absence.

'A revelation. Justine Gilbert is a master storyteller.' Winner of the Historical Fiction Company's, American category, Silver Award 2022.
