Robert Wainwright has deftly captured the life of an Australian girl who travels to "The Old Country" and entrenches herself into the high flying socialite's world in England. Making friends in high places, including royalty, she becomes the darling of the Bright Young Things set. Wainright's research has been methodical and as precise as he can get with the information gathered, which includes Sheila's unpublished memoirs and the many, many references to Sheila's dalliances and capers with the the BYTs in the press. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Highly recommended.
