Author Pat Cavendish O’Neill spent her childhood, teenage years and early adulthood in a rarefied world of luxury where the Vanderbilts of New York were considered nouveau riche and her mother, Enid, one of the Lindeman wine family thought nothing of walking through Mayfair with a cheetah and flying to Kenya on safari in here private aeroplane in the 1930’s. Pat tells the story of her charmed life among the glittering names of the twentieth century, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Gianni Agnelli, Princess Grace and the Hollywood crowd.. and the day everything changed when a lover in Africa presented her with a tiny lion cub and she entered a world more magical and inspiring than anything she had known before. The love to animals would determine her life furtheron.
