Eight is Enough A Father's Memoir of Life with his Extra Large Family by Tom Braden
I would love to have a big family and I enjoyed this series, but, unfortunately, I found this book a bit dull and polemical. I wanted to know more about the children and less about the differences between the generations. I did think that it would be more of an amusing and light book.
However, I really enjoyed reading about the famous people who Braden and his wife knew. For example, they were good friends of the Kennedys - Jackie and Joan (Braden's wife) seemed to be especially close. There was also a fascinating anecdote about Rosa Lewis and the old Cavendish Hotel.
Braden's book about his time in the OSS might be more interesting.
I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
