Edith Roosevelt was one half of one of the most powerful and influential political couples in American history. She proved to be a perfect complement to her husband, Theodore, as her quiet and self-assured nature balanced the exuberance and recklessness of her husband. She was mother to the largest family of children ever to live in the White House and is rated as one of the more efficient and competent First Ladies. Yet, she is also a figure that is cloaked in relative obscurity. After Theodore’s death, Edith refused offers to write an autobiography and instead continued to work to promote the memory of her husband and his political legacy. Towards the end of her life, Edith slipped into obscurity and was far overshadowed by her relative, Eleanor Roosevelt. This book provides readers with an overview of both Edith Roosevelt’s character and personality and her accomplishments as political wife. (Imprint: Novinka)
