it was amazing

Interesting biography of Princess Alice. The apple sure didn't fall from her fathers tree. Alice had an amazing mind, in another day and time she would have been a leading politician. This book chronicles the White House years, how she was actually the first modern "celebrity" that was followed, documented and exploited by paparazzi. Alice was hugely popular, the papers and public couldn't get enough of her, anything she did became newsworthy. Her private life, some major things never disclosed until after her death in 1980, is immensley interesting, and nearly as complex as her family. A good insight into early 20th century politics. She was a unique woman,a well worth reading biography.
