Actor/writer Paul Dubov did his first film work as a Universal contract player in 1942. Never a leading man, Dubov was the quintessential utility player, able to convey characters of virtually any age or ethnic range.

The book recounts one womens lifetime spent working first as a maid prior to Hoover as President through the Kennedy assasination. I never tire of reading this intimate picture of Maggie and Lillian's years at the White House. Wish there was a sequel. Through her eyes you get a first hand look at the inside lives of the presidents and their families. A book to be read over and over.

Underscores the author's devotion to the presidential families she served

The content was fascinating, particularly the interaction with the First Ladies. It was also interesting to see the relationships of the Presidents with the servants. Some became friends, and some never spoke.

My sister loaned me this book several years and and I thought I needed one for my book collection. Tells the story of the White House from the maids service bringing to life the lives of the prior presidents and their families.
GoodLike
My mother loved it and it made the mini series even more interesting.
Hurus
FICTION VERSION OF ACTUAL EVENTS!!. This was NOT clearly stated--I only saw it after it was delivered--very tiny print on the picture of the book cover, & far down on the item description. VERY disapponted, but I got what I ordered.
Ffyan
This book arrived quickly and in good condition. I had watched this series on tv years ago and was pleased to read all about it again. This book reveals the problems maids, butlers and cooks have with likes and dislikes of the various first ladies. A good read.
Debeme
For history buffs, this is a good book. The television series made from the book was even better. I have read and watched both many times and learn something different each viewing. Would recommend.
very interesting
