I read this with a grain of salt, but her life and era are fascinating to me. Her narration was like listening to my grandmother tell stories which made this a relaxing and enjoyable book. Read full review

Review: The Times We Had: Life with William Randolph Hearst

User Review  - dini - Goodreads
