H the new first lady will take her from New York and Washington to Scotts Run West Virginia where impoverished coal miners’ families wait in fear that the New Deal’s promised hope will pass them by Together Eleanor and Hick imagine how the new town of Arthurdale could change the fate of hundreds of lives But doing what is right does not come cheap and Hick will pay in ways she never could have imagined Undiscovered Country artfully mixes. 72 Undiscovered Country by Kelly O'Connor McNeesa gift from the Book of the Month Club with a deadline for reading and a survey to be completed an opportunity and assignment I COMPLETELY relished This beautifully and well told fictional story is based on the volume of correspondence exchanged between Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok an AP journalist assigned to FDR and his wife during his Presidential campaign I struggle with the genre honestly that is neither true non fiction nor completely fiction Historical fiction is not my go to genre but when I read it I do so critically wishing to identify and process appropriately the unbelievable parts as well as the believable ones that then aid my understanding of or fill in the blanks of that time and place I wrestle even I think with what this is; while McNees is completely honest about the story itself and conveys even that one of the characters completely her creation rather than fact I have a hard time filing it for myself given that it's based on REAL people and a potentially REAL storybut not truth or fact in its telling But that is not to indicate at all a dislike or discredit for this story or book McNees is a talented artist telling well the story she crafts using valuable and even poetic devices as well as enjoyable and invigorating diction and also creating complex and viable characters of these women making them believable as well as engaging readers in their story Hopefully BOTM does feature itand then also gives me the opportunity to do for them
