Summary
  • "A daughter of American royalty, Eileen Rockefeller is one of the first in her family to write a memoir of growing up with fame and fortune and finding her own voice within its storied history"--
  • Eileen Rockefeller understood at an early age that her name was synonymous with American royalty. She learned in childhood that wealth and fame could open any door; but as the youngest of six children and one of twenty-two cousins in one of the world's most famous families, she began to realize that they could not buy a sense of personal worth. She shows us her philosophy: that power and richness come not from material goods, but from personal relationships and co-creation
