Publisher's Summary

Amazon Editor’s Top Pick

The untold story of the three intelligent and glamorous young women who accompanied their famous fathers to the Yalta Conference with Stalin, and of the fateful reverberations in the waning days of World War II.

Tensions during the Yalta Conference in February 1945 threatened to tear apart the wartime alliance among Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin just as victory was close at hand. Catherine Grace Katz uncovers the dramatic story of the three young women who were chosen by their fathers to travel with them to Yalta, each bound by fierce family loyalty, political savvy, and intertwined romances that powerfully colored these crucial days. 

Kathleen Harriman was a champion skier, war correspondent, and daughter of US ambassador to the Soviet Union Averell Harriman. Sarah Churchill, an actress-turned-RAF officer, was devoted to her brilliant father, who depended on her astute political mind. Roosevelt’s only daughter, Anna, chosen instead of her mother, Eleanor, to accompany the president to Yalta, arrived there as keeper of her father’s most damaging secrets. 

Situated in the political maelstrom that marked the transition to a post war world, The Daughters of Yalta is a remarkable story of fathers and daughters whose relationships were tested and strengthened by the history they witnessed and the future they crafted together.

The Iron Curtain

Reneging on every promise-Stalin betrayed Roosevelt and Churchill and the entire world.
Ivanka Trump could NEVER compare to Sarah Churchill, Kathleen Harriman and Anna Roosevelt- she’s a disgrace and has brought diplomacy to a new low- thank goodness she will be leaving DC on January 20, 2021- Good riddance!

Excellent, moving book.

Excellent book about three daughters and their relationship with their famous fathers. Also the little recognized, albeit important, roles women played in World War II.

Excellent book!

I loved this book! It focuses on the daughters of Roosevelt, Churchill and Averill Harriman during their war experiences with their fathers and also their personal lives. A lot of heartbreak each of them experienced but this is a great listen!

Fascinating unknown history

Curiously the diaries and letters, collected snd smoothed into a story of these three women who accompanied their famous fathers to the last conference of WW2 gives more daylight to actual events than Han any historian could ever do. Couldn’t put it down. Beautiful reading too.
