Summary
Enid Lindeman stood almost six feet tall, with silver hair and flashing turquoise eyes. The girl from Strathfield in Sydney stopped traffic in Manhattan, silenced gamblers in Monte Carlo and dared walk a pet cheetah through Hyde Park in London on a diamond collar. In early twentieth century society where women were expected to be demure and obedient, the grand-daughter of Hunter Valley wine pioneer Henry Lindeman waltzed through life to her own drum beat. She drove an ambulance in World War I and hid escaped Allied pilots behind enemy lines in World War II, played bridge with Somerset Maugham and entertained Hollywood royalty in the world's most expensive private home on the Riviera, allegedly won in a poker game. Enid bedazzled men with her beauty, outlived four husbands - two shipping magnates, a war hero and a larger-than-life Irish Earl - spent two great fortunes and earned the nickname Lady Killmore. From Sydney to New York, London to Paris and Cairo to Kenya, Robert Wainwright tells the fascinating story of a life lived large on the world stage
