Certainly a life story of how "the other half" lived - maybe some still do live like this. Everyone seemed to be swapping partners, all relationships seemed to be very carefree. And the social activities - like a dream. So much money for those who had it. Involvement with the Royal Family members a bit of an eye opener! It was not the sort of life that most of us live these days, that's for sure. Not much parenting of the offspring of the rich and famous! But of course they wouldn't have time with all their social activities! But I quite enjoyed the book - it was well written. Can't say that for all the books one buys these days.
