(Ad - Gifted) Rock ‘n’ Roll Nanny by Sally Arnold - Book Review!

I love reading but tend not to make time for it. Last year I think I read 6 books and this year I want to double that so it works out one book a month and so far I am on track.

I have just started a new book. Rock ‘n’ Roll Nanny by Sally ArnoldA nanny for the Jaggers to the worlds first female rock tour manager for Lynyrd Skynyrd to running charity events with Princes Diana & Elton John - read the life story of Sally Arnold the rock 'n' roll nanny who fell into an adventurous life most of us can only dream of. 

Rock ‘n’ Roll Nanny book

From Rock and Roll legends to ministers of state this literary journey brings in some of the most iconic and formidable characters of our age by a formidable, trailblazing woman who has lived through myriad incredible moments in time. From The Who and The Jaggers to the Royals and State leaders, Sally has seen it all and worked with massive household names. From her time with the fated American rock band Lynyrd Skynyd, through to Classic FM and all round the networks of Charity Projects, Comic Relief and numerous other high profile events with the likes of Princess Diana, the stories are vivid and eye opening.

Sally was the first woman in the UK to get a tattoo over her mastectomy scar having battled breast cancer. Sally was the first female tour manager for The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, The Who and Lynard Skynard. Sally really is the epitome of a true, strong, independent, trailblazing woman.

Find out what really happens in the places where cameras don’t go! Capture a unique awareness of the real journeys that paved the way for some of the most inspiring figures and groundbreaking thinkers and performers of our time, from the perspective of a Norland Nurse. Rock’n’Roll Nanny is a must read for fans and believers alike and provides immeasurable insight, unseen images, photographs and thoughts into some of the most prolific people of our time.

I love reading about real people which is why I probably don't find much time to read books as I tend to read blogs and read about people's lives but this book is all about an amazing woman and it is well worth a read. What a life she has had and I'm not even half way through. She went from a quiet life, being raised on a farm in Wiltshire, trained as a Norland Nurse and then got a job as nanny to Mick and Bianca Jagger’s daughter and her life changed.

What are you reading at the moment?
