She also demonstrated steady assuredness and graceful calm in everything she did-from interacting with her family and receiving guests at home to presenting herself in public.
Jennifer L. Scott passes on the lessons she learned as well as some of her own hard-won wisdom, addressing topics such as proper attire at social events, good grooming, communication skills, hospitality and being a good guest, our interactions with neighbours and strangers, role models, self-discipline, and self-image.
This charmingly illustrated, practical, and inspiring book, full of tips, lists, and ideas, is certain to start a new conversation about the timeless art of poise.
