Mixed feelings. The first half, which describes her childhood, was charming and funny, although I've already read most of the same stories in her sisters' books. The second half, which focuses on her stately home(s) and her horses and her la-de-da guests, didn't interest me at all. She comes off as shallow and and clueless. I was put off by the running commentary about the the glorious past vs the annoying present. She pines for the days when people were SO much more glamorous, and it was easier to get good help, and the evil government didn't take all your money (money that your great-great-great-great grandfather-in-law stole from peasants). Somewhere in heaven her sister Jessica is banging her head against a wall (or a cloud), and Nancy is snorting and rolling her eyes.
