Grace Kelly's storybook American tale -- the story of a radiantly beautiful girl born of immigrants -- the daughter of a self-made millionaire -- who grew up to become the wife of a prince, the mother of two princesses, and a son who is the ruler of the glittering principality that is Monaco.
Beautiful, elegant and mysterious, Grace Kelly captivated the world for decades. But as Wendy Leigh records, her life -- while sometimes magical -- had more than its share of loss and unhappiness. Leigh recounts an era when a pretty girl could ream of becoming a movie star almost overnight and go on to be an honest-to-God princess; she also records the dark side of the dream.
From her premonition of her death in a car crash to her never-before-revealed affairs both before and after her marriage, Wendy Leigh approaches Grace Kelly's life with compassion and care, especially in light of Grace's human flaws. It is a remarkable story.
