Reader recommendation: Wait for Me!

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

By Sue Ransohoff, Cincinnati / February 7, 2011


Wait for Me! by Deborah Mitford, Duchess of Devonshire, is a wonderful memoir. “Debo,” as she was called, writes of a happy childhood, but also of deaths in World War II, miscarriages, and the disturbing story of her sister Unity. She writes about connections with the Kennedys, the Churchills, Fred and Adele Astaire, and Queen Elizabeth without a tinge of name-dropping. The youngest of the Mitford sisters comes across as a delightful person – one you’d love to have lunch with. Since you can’t, I recommend her book.
