“Colorful account of events that shaped Frances Perkins and the many contributions of Perkins that today are certainly taken for granted . . . .Highly recommended.”

“I couldn’t put the book down.”
A reader

“Penny Colman…is…thorough, fair and candid in her treatment of Frances Perkins….readers will learn…of the immense power that can be brought to bear against anyone in our society-especially, perhaps, against women who dare to demand that our politics advance a common good, that it be rooted in morality and not in self-interest.”
New York Times Book Review
