Grace Kelly's story is the quintessential America saga - 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 of royal blood, the mother of two princesses, and a son who is the ruler of the glittering yet sinister 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 dream of becoming a movie star almost overnight and go on to be an honest-to-God Princess; she also records the dark side of Grace Kelly's life. From her premonition of her death in a car crash to her never-before-revealed affair with David Niven, Wendy Leigh approaches Grace Kelly's life with compassion and care, especially in light of Grace's human flaws.
