Remarkable story in Spanish about a living legend.
At age 85, Cayetana Duchess of Alba has wed for
the third time. She has opened her Madrid palace to the
public, and described her family history and imitable
lifestyle in a spellbinding autobiography. Want to know
how she continues to be a magnet for our attention? Here
are the details of her childhood, her losses during WWII,
the rebuiling of her legacy, her children, and above all
her great romances.

No entra en mayores detalles, pero ofrece un panorama de la vida y obra de la simpática Duquesa de Alba, que siempre me cayó muy en gracia por su franqueza, su carácter jovial, por muchas de sus respuestas pícaras y por qué no decirlo, por su legendario mal gusto en el vestir ¡Se ponía cada facha...! Pero ese rasgo excéntrico también era muy simpático. Aquí aparece el retrato de épocas ya idas, que ella sin duda vivió intensamente. Me encanta la exquisita educación y elegancia de Cayetana para decir las cosas. De verdad que fue una persona muy libre y amó intensamente. Sin duda llevó una vida llena de privilegios, pero también supo dar. Por su carácter, fuerza de voluntad y carisma se ganó el cariño, admiración y respeto de todo mundo. Es un relato ameno de su vida, contado en primera persona, que te da una idea de la vida y obra de esta singular mujer. Descansa en paz, Cayetana de Alba.

I ordered this book for my wife who speaks Spanish but I don't. She said it is exactly as advertised and is very pleased with the condition and context of the book.

What a great reading, and what a great woman. My sister was the one that admired her and bought all the magazines that mentioned her. She began lending me all of that until finally I found out that Cayetana had written 2 books. This one -the first one she had written- was difficult to find. I loved it! I learned a lot from her. She had many awful situations in her life, yet she kept on going focused on helping the needy, her family, and doing the utmost to save and restore her family's patrimony. She belonged to the royalty, but she managed to be herself, enjoy her various hobbies, and be part of the common folks, especially those from her beloved Sevilla. I learned a lot about Spain, and I am planning to go on a trip there to visit many of the places that were part of her life experiences.

Un personaje que dio mucha polémica en España. En mi opinión una personalidad fuerte, marcada por una infancia diferente a la de un ciudadano común.
La Duquesa de Alba, una mujer única e irrepetible,que hizo siempre lo que quiso, como quiso y con quién quiso.
Como lo expresado ella más de una vez en esta autobiografía, ella es la mejor expresión de su famoso motto: "vive y deja vivir". Fue sin duda alguna y como ella misma lo confiesa, mejor esposa que madre, pero no me cabe duda de que sus hijos, cada uno a su manera, la querían más de lo que ellos pensaban y a partir de su partida le admiran más que antes.

The story of the life of Cayetana, the Duchess of Alba, as told by her until prior to her last marriage. Told through her eyes, she discusses her loneliness as a child, having grown up without her mother, and her father's attentions to educate her about her heritage and future commitments to the House of Alba. She tries to present herself as a normal person and dismisses her wealth as something made up by the press. Overall a good read. Kept me engaged throughout.

El libro resulta demasiado básico. No desvela ninguna información original y es demasiado corto. Deja afuera muchas anécdotas seguramente mucho más interesantes...
La duquesa es única y se merece un libro único también.
