520    In 1932, New York City, top reporter Lorena "Hick" Hickok 
       starts each day with a front page byline--and finishes it 
       swigging bourbon and planning her next big scoop. But an 
       assignment to cover FDR's campaign--and write a feature on
       his wife, Eleanor--turns Hick's hard-won independent life 
       on its ear. Soon her work, and the secret entanglement 
       with 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 fact and fiction to portray the intense 
       relationship between this unlikely pair. Inspired by the 
       historical record, including the more than three thousand 
       letters Hick and Eleanor exchanged over a span of thirty 
       years, McNees tells this story through Hick's tough, 
       tender, and unforgettable voice. A remarkable portrait of 
       Depression-era America, this novel tells the poignant 
       story of how a love that was forced to remain hidden 
       nevertheless changed history.
