“Grace Kennan Warnecke isn't as well known as other Kennans have been, but she should be and this memoir shows why. It's a vivid account of living a life of one's own with a famous father, supplying much that's missing in other biographies. Highly recommended.”
—John Lewis Gaddis, Yale University, author of George F. Kennan: An American Life
—Alexander Cooley, Director, Harriman Institute, Columbia University

If you are thinking of reading this memoir primarily to learn more about George Kennan, the author's father and famed diplomat, or the politics of the Cold War you most probably will be disappointed.
Warnecke moved around a good deal as a child and was somewhat neglected; while often at odds with her mother, she respected her remote father; was unlucky in her several love affairs (including two busted marriages); politically liberal (sightings of Adlai Stevenson and several of the Kennedy Clan are related in detail); hopped from job to job (mostly on the fringes of private and public foundations aimed at improving East-West relations); and moved around a good deal as an adult.
Warnecke writes well, but to fully understand the meaning of her unstable life calls for more psychological insight than I have at hand.
A cautionary tale for women who compromise their potential caring for men who need help more than love,
It is an easy book to read and insightful, whether or not one is interested in her famous father.
