The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War is a 2020 book by American historian Catherine Grace Katz, published on September 29, 2020, by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. [2] [3] [4] [5]

The book tells the story of Sarah Churchill (daughter of Winston Churchill), Anna Roosevelt (daughter of Franklin Delano Roosevelt), and Kathleen Harriman (daughter of W. Averell Harriman) — all of whom accompanied their fathers to the Yalta Conference, where they had roles that were unofficial but nonetheless important. [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]

Reception

Publishers Weekly lauded the book as "a fresh take on a decisive moment in the history of WWII and the Cold War," [13] and ranked it as one of the best nonfiction books of 2020. [14]

Jennet Conant, reviewing the book for The New York Times, said it was "entertaining" and "packed with vivid personalities (and) insider observations about a pivotal moment in history." [2]

Moira Hodgson, writing for The Wall Street Journal, commended the book as "skillfully written and meticulously researched." [3]
