I recently finished reading this book and although I do not really call it a biography it is nearly one. It tells a great deal about her life, but its focus is the law suit between her grandson and her son when she was in her 100s over who should see to her welfare. It is a very interesting book and I believe well balanced between the point of view that her son was robbing her vs. her son was a bumbling idiot and did a very bad job of taking care of her, plus he did not like her.

Cautionary tale.
