Please do not mistake this book for just another "daughter of" memoir. Grace's story is her own. While her father, the well known Ambassador George Kennan, plays an important role in this story, this is the life of an amazing woman who has refused to be limited by the glass ceiling and who has lived, and continues to live, an extraordinary life. The book is beautifully written, funny, poignant and captivating.

I wonderfully candid story of a exceptional person in a exceptional families in an exceptional period of history

Some men just can't realize just how lucky they are to be with a wonderfully delightful woman,
A cautionary tale for women who compromise their potential caring for men who need help more than love,
