Book Review


I am reading a wonderful book entitled, "Mrs. Astor Regrets." This book explores the final years of Brooke Astor, New York's leading philanthropist. Her son was charged with elder abuse towards his mother when he was in his eighties and she was over 100. Mrs. Astor lived to be 104. This book gives you an inside look at New York's high society: the Rockefellers, Kissingers, De La Rentas and Astors. I think you'll enjoy it!
