About the Author:

Mimi Beardsley Alford is a retired church administrator in New York and has two children and four grandchildren.

Review:

"With the benefit of hindsight and good old-fashioned maturity, she does not judge her young self, or indeed JFK, too harshly. She writes not just about the secret, but about the corrosive effect of keeping that secret ... In short, she's a wise old bird, and you can't help liking her, or her elegant and thoroughly good-natured book." Spectator "Her memoir rings true: now approaching her 70th birthday, Mimi Alford has no reason to dissemble, and her confessions of complicity are sufficiently candid to allow her professions of innocence to be taken at face value ... Much of her vivid, soul-searching memoir is about living with her secret." Daily Mail "A likeable book by a likeable woman, who seems entirely trustworthy." -- Lynn Barber Sunday Times
