Golden days in Vienna, at the court of the Empress Elizabeth, by her niece, who was her constant companion and innocent messenger. The sort of court gossip that makes popular reading for women, and this is good of its kind. The color and whirl of court life in the middle and latter half of the 19th century, with glimpses of crowned heads and titled nobility, and a dramatic picture of the intrigue and scandal and daily round of the life there. Then comes the war -- activities of the Red Cross -- life in post-war Munich and Berlin, the flight of the royal court -- her own trip to America -- finally her return to the convent of her girlhood. A good chance for wide circulation and a fair sale.
