" Nancy is an honest and shy cook and maid. For once her book doesn't rewrite the narrator's character and she seems to fit perfectly in the picture. A short and positive book that pictures life at Graceland in the last 10 years of Elvis's life and the years that followed. An objective portrait of a man who was her boss as well as someone she loved and took care of like all women around him did... until they left. Nancy stayed up until the end (and kept working at Graceland a few years after that). Nancy's recollection of August 16, 1977 brings another perspective to the sad picture and somehow rehabilitates Ginger Alden who had less friends than enemies inside Graceland. "
" A very nice and interesting insight behind Graceland's doors. Nancy is humble and honest and sincere and her portrait of Elvis is one of the most touching. A very small book full of love. "
" a small book easy to read but good value and another unique look at Elvis and the Presley family from someone who was there. a 7 .MB. "
