The Daughters of Yalta is a wonderful companion to Eric Larson’s The Splendid and the Vile, which topped two of our booksellers’ Best Of lists last year. Catherine Grace Katz’s debut book will satisfy the appetite of any reader who is hungry to know more about the unique connection between the Churchills and the Harrimans. Katz also spills the tea on FDR in his final months, told through his daughter’s letters and diaries. This is a worthy read for any history buff looking for a fresh perspective on these iconic families, their connection to Seattle, and the post-war era.
