"Claridge is becoming the sort of biographer readers will follow anywhere....this [is the] absorbing study of a keenly perceptive ethicist second only to Eleanor Roosevelt in the immensity of her influence. (Booklist)
I never tired of her voice. Christine did an awesome job. She could speak the French words and phrases like a native.
The movie "Gatsby" began to spark my interest in the Gilded Age so I find Emily's life and experiences fascinating.
I wish Audible's inventory included books authored by Emily Post.
...especially Emily's connection with architecture.
She was not a trend-follower, but a trend-setter who believed that "etiquette" was all about making others feel comfortable.
The narrator was good, but mispronounced some names and words which she should have looked up if she was unfamiliar with them.
Very informative about a woman who was a household name when I grew up in the fifties. It also was very informative about a period in American history between the Civil War and World War I. I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
