This book celebrates and examines the way she presented herself to the world-in her look, her smile, her choice of dress, even her hairstyle.
From the moment the innocent young nanny stepped into the very public role of Princess, her innermost thoughts and emotions had to remain concealed. Yet her sense of herself was inexorably conveyed through her manner of dress and her public demeanor as she passed through the many phases of her public life.

I wanted to know more about how the middle east was carved up after WWI, and this book told part of the story. d

I really enjoyed this book. I didn't really know anything about Gertrude Bell before I read this book. She was a fascinating woman. She traveled alone across Arabia. In many ways she was a head of her time. Yet, in many ways she was a product of her time. She would not marry when her father refused to give her permission. She was an independent women yet she was against giving women the right to vote.
