    1. Wonderful memoirs of a woman who lived through some of the most turbulent, frightening, fascinating, and fantastic times in world history. Going from the Queen's lady in waiting, to hiding from the revolutionaries and sewing peasant clothes, immigrating to America, and then all the rest of her topsy turvy life it's a book I thought about when I wasn't reading it. I wanted to stop whatever I was doing and go back to reading it. I went without sleep to finish it - and wanted more more more.
