If you wanted a picture of the life of Elvis Presley, who better to paint it for you than someone who worked as his trusted cook and maid at Graceland? Someone whose daily tasks centered around keeping the King of Rock & Roll happy, whose every move was designed to please the greatest music legend the entertainment world has ever known.
Here is that picture, as painted by Nancy Rooks. Nancy worked for Elvis from 1967 until his untimely death in 1977. Read her stories of what those years were like, of what the routines were at Graceland, and what it meant to be close to Elvis and his family on a daily basis. Read the sad account of her rushing upstairs, after a frantic call from Ginger Alden, and finding him on the bathroom floor. This book presents that picture, one that every Elvis fan will want to see.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thank you Nancy as a life long Elvi Fan I was surprised to learn some new things about Elvis and Graceland.
What a great tribute to the Presley's told by a real classy lady. I could feel how much she loved that family in this book. I'm very happy she shared this story with the world. The Presley's weren't like so many celebrity families leaching off their meal ticket. This was a family that truly loved each other and had nothing but the best intentions for Elvis. I feel privileged to have been allowed to know these stories. I enjoyed this book so much, it inspired me to do my first iBook review.
Book very short but very good a must read for any Elvis fan
