Different to the usual story of the life of a famous film star where the facts told to us are researched . This book is written by a lady who had spent her life with Ava . The story has great warmth & much humour . She tells her tale with refreshing candour. I tell you, they lived life to the full . I always remember being taken by my Mother, who thought Ava was really something, to see The Barefoot Contessa. The opening scene I shall never forget filmed in glorious technicolor .It was raining a funeral was being conducted outside in a cemetery the colour was startling I was rapt. I thought Ava beautiful mysterious enigmatic..turns out she was a rip roaring gal who lived,life to the full. And then some!!!.

Ive read a few books on Ava Gardner & this is the best . It's very personal but written with such candour & affection that I can't imagine Miss G would have objected . It was very well written too , drawing in people & events of the time , & setting the stage for the main character . The author had a rip roaring time with Miss G & I couldn't have stood the pace - but I do envy her .

Reenie, thank you for finally telling your hilarious and heartwarming story. Ava fans have always wanted to know what made Mearene Jordan, Ava's nearly-life-long assistant and sidekick, tick (and put up with Miss G for so long), and we've finally got it. A brilliant slice of life of the inner workings of a movie star and her erstwhile, no-nonsense companion.

As well as being a superlative beauty, Ava Gardner was a great personality, as you will learn by reading this account by the star's close companion. Mearene Jordan spent many years in the service of Miss Gardner, and saw numerous colourful and memorable events in that time. Anyone interested in the life and career of Ava Gardner will find this fond and personal memoir a great addition to other available literature.

one of the best books I've read in years i enjoyed the frankness of it ,they were obviously great friends and Ava was a lovely woman,who defied the convention of the time, by taking her black maid everywhere with her and if the maid wasnt allowed in then ava never went in .
