Publisher's Summary

“A five-year-old couldn’t get into too much trouble, right?”

Jinx at the Greenbrier is a humorous and creative chronicle of a young girl who practically grew up at the acclaimed Greenbrier Hotel, which is one of the finest resorts in the world. Her stories begin when she arrived in 1936 and met such notable historical personalities as Eleanor Roosevelt, Clare Boothe Luce, and Sam Snead. Her adventures continue through the era when the Greenbrier housed high-level German and Japanese diplomats at the beginning of World War II, then through the days when it served as a United States Army hospital. Jinx’s exploits encompass encounters with interior designer Dorothy Draper, the Duchess of Windsor, and Bing Crosby - just to name a few.

Jinx at the Greenbrier offers a fascinating picture of the celebrities, high-society personalities, and government officials who frequented the grand Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia during the '30s and '40s. Prop up your feet, grab a cuppa tea, and delight in these misadventures, as told through the eyes of an 86-year-old woman reminiscing about the days when she was little girl growing up at the fabulous Greenbrier Resort.
