"What Remains" is a vivid and haunting memoir about a girl from a working-class town who becomes an award-winning television producer and marries a prince, Anthony Radziwill. Carole grew up in a small suburb with a large, eccentric cast of characters. At nineteen, she struck out for New York City to find a different life. Her career at ABC News led her to the refugee camps of Cambodia, to a bunker in Tel Aviv, and to the scene of the Menendez murders. Her marriage led her into the old world of European nobility and the newer world of American aristocracy.

What Remains begins with loss and returns to loss. A small plane plunges into the ocean carrying John F. Kennedy Jr., Anthony's cousin, and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Carole's closest friend. Three weeks later Anthony dies of cancer. With unflinching honesty and a journalist's keen eye, Carole Radziwill explores the enduring ties of family, the complexities of marriage, the importance of friendship, and the challenges of self-invention. Beautifully written, "What Remains" "gets at the essence of what matters," wrote Oprah Winfrey. "Friendship, compassion, destiny."

    Comments about What Remains:

    This book is deeply touching and draws the reader into the story as a family member or close friend. The openness of the writing allows you to live the experiences and find your own meaning within them.
    I greatly enjoyed this story. While sad, and at times devastating, it was a worthwhile journey that the reader can come out of feeling uplifted and at peace.

      Comments about What Remains:

      A really touching insight into the close relationships between people that truly matter in life. I cried multiple times and struggled to put the book down. This book left me with a heavy heart and a greater appreciation for life, loved ones, ones health, friendships and retrospection of ones journey. Highly recommended.
