Annotation As the younger daughter of Lord and Lady Mountbatten, Pamela Hick's childhood was an extraordinary whirlwind of British aristocracy, eccentricity, glamour, and education. During WWII she was sent to live in New York City with Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt. In 1947, her parents were appointed to India and she developed a relationship with Gandhi and Nehru. She served as a bridesmaid to Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip's wedding. This superbly detailed, witty and intimate memoir is an enchanting lens into a privileged life in the early part of the twentieth century.
