Publishers Weekly writes: This enchanting autobiography by the last Ranee of Sarawak is graced by wit, style, tough-minded candor and a glowing, affectionate spirit that should move and delight readers. Sylvia Brooke's narrative spans 80 years, and is a unique personal history enriched by vivid anecdotes too marvellous to have been contrived.

Of her womanizing husband, who had girls until he was 87, she says with abiding affection, "you have to admire a man like that". ... [Autobiography]
