Overview

If you wanted a picture of the life of Elvis Presley, who better to paint it for you than someone who worked as his trusted cook and maid at Graceland? Someone whose daily tasks centered around keeping the 'King of Rock & Roll' happy, whose every move was designed to please the greatest music legend the entertainment world has ever known.

Here is that picture, as painted by Nancy Rooks. Nancy worked for Elvis from 1967 until his untimely death in 1977. Read her stories of what those years were like, of what the routines were at Graceland, and what it meant to be close to Elvis and his family on a daily basis. Read the sad account of her rushing upstairs, after a frantic call from Ginger Alden, and finding him on the bathroom floor. This book presents that picture, one that every Elvis fan will want to see.

Simple and poignant. If you are looking for something scandalous, you will not find it here. Nancy tells her story of the Elvis she knew and worked for. Very refreshing read. She highlights some of her memories from the time she began working for Elvis and his family to that fateful day in August of 1977.

I am an Elvis die hard fan and I will only read books that are written by the people who were closest to him, who loved him and who will respect his memory. This book is well written and it not only gives you a retrospect of his personal life inside the walls of Graceland, but it also covers his beloved family members that lived with him. Her story is heart felt and you can feel the love and respect she had for him. Her story paints her picture of Elvis the "man" and not just Elvis the Super Star. It is a book I recommend to all Elvis fans.

I had gone to Graceland this fall and if I would have read this book I would have looked for the little things that the author wrote about. It was a very good read!

It is obvious the respect Nancy Rooks has for Elvis Presley and his family who lived at Graceland. Her story is dignified and charming. She tells it with honesty and simplicity. I've no doubt the Presley family would be pleased with her book.
