The book is an interesting attempt to widen out interest in the family from just the famous sisters. It spends rather too long on the grandfathers trying to find eccentricities to explain the characters of the girls.
More importantly, as one other review suggests, it is heavily biased towards justifying the Fascist sympathies of several of the girls, their brother and their mother. In fairness there is no attempt to conceal this, and the fact that it is written by family members makes the sympathy understandable and recognisable.
