    A differant perspective

    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 Also Recommend:

    Great book.

    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.
