At thirty-three, in a sudden, shocking, and highly public act, Rosamond took her own life, setting in motion generations of confusion in the family she left behind.Nearly seventy years after her demise, her granddaughter Bibi received a box of more than 1,500 pages of Rosamonds diaries and embarked on a seven-year journey to make sense of the silence that surrounded Rosamonds death and to discover the grandmother she never knew.

An acclaimed beauty, actress, socialite, and outdoorswoman, Rosamond became the key to Bibis understanding of her enigmatic and adventurous father, her glamorous but painfully divided family, and herself.Through the silent labyrinth of a brilliant but troubled family, Bibi pieced together Rosamonds life story—her magical embrace of nature, her love for two compelling but difficult men, and her circle of on tops, intimates, and mentors, including Elizabeth Arden, Eleanor Roosevelt, George Cukor, and David O.

Selznick. Bibi also discovered the tragic legacy of the women in her family, including Rosamonds cousin Edie Sedgwick and her half sister, Mary Pinchot Meyer, whose murder in 1964 has never been solved.As if looking in a mirror, Bibi found parts of herself in the complex, tragic, yet beautiful story of the high-spirited Rosamond Pinchot and designed a mission at midlife: to outlive the often difficult, but exuberant and passionate, lives of her ancestors.
