Product description

Review

"Entertaining...delves into the Kennedy family legend, with energetic pace, witty dialogue and vividly drawn characters."--The Observer

"Chatty and insightful...perceptive....Graham blends accurate historical detail with Nora's outspoken and gossipy vernacular in this highly entertaining read."--Booklist

"A convincing and often moving version of the private realities behind America's most public family."--Daily Mail (London)

"Lush....The tart observations of lives of privilege may take the shine off the Camelot myth, but Graham's book is marked not by ridicule but rather by an elegant, forthright poignancy. A refreshingly nostalgia-free portrayal that breathes life into the Kennedy story."--Kirkus Reviews

"A titillating and amusing...book, because it walks such a fragile line between what is known fact and what the author has embellished and concocted....Ms. Graham's Nora is the personification of the immortal nanny who knew everything and said nothing - but took notes."--Washington Times

"Bitter and sweet as well as affecting...tender."--New York Daily News

"Tightknit, ambitious and out to prove a point to the world, this is the fictionalised tale of the Kennedys from below the stairs....This simple yet enthralling narrative kept my interest the whole way....A lovely tale, this is another well-written offering from Laurie Graham."--Daily News (New Plymouth, New Zealand)

"Mingling history and fiction puts Graham in good literary company...romance and dry humor keep things moving.... The chance to watch Nora's employers swan in and out of view will draw readers, and Graham will keep as many as she can charm."--New York Times Book Review

Sunday Times

`entertaining...through Nora's exuberant Irish brogue, Graham pays as much attention to the less well-known siblings'.
