Doris Kearns Goodwin's Pulitzer Prize-winning monumental bestseller, No Ordinary Time, is now available from Encore for only $14.99!

From the bestselling author of Team of Rivals and The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys, a compelling chronicle of a nation and its leaders during the period when modern America was created. At the center of the country’s transformation was the complex partnership of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Using diaries, interviews, and White House records of the president’s and first lady’s comings and goings, Goodwin paints a detailed, intimate portrait not only of the daily conduct of the presidency during wartime but of the Roosevelts themselves and their extraordinary constellation of friends, advisers, and family, many of whom lived with them in the White House.

Bringing to bear the tools of history and biography as well as her great talent for capturing larger-than-life characters, Goodwin relates the unique story of how Franklin Roosevelt, surrounded by his small circle of intimates, led the nation to military victory abroad against seemingly insurmountable odds and, with Eleanor’s essential help, forever changes the fabric of American society.
