|Plot Summary of Shadows of a Princess|
|"Patrick Jephson served as Princess Diana's private secretary and writes an opinion-filled and detail light account of his years with the woman he describes as willful, petty, disturbed and vengeful, yet portrays in action as caring, hurt, humorous, smart, and dedicated. Overall a petty and bitchy book by a self-serving and self obsessed writer. Not really worth wading through."
Bonnie MacBird, Resident Scholar
