Synopsis

Audrey Hepburn, daughter of a Dutch baroness and an Anglo-Irish banker, oozed class from every pre. Everywhere she went, she radiated elegance and her own particular brand of chic. For forty years millions of women tried to emulate her - and failed. This is the story of the schoolgirl who worked with the Dutch Resistance in World War II; the ballet dancer-turned model who nearly married a Yorkshire landowner; the British starlet who won the Best Actress Oscar for her very first film and went on to become the world's highest-paid star and a living legend. Here too is the story of a woman who loved widely but not too well; of the two husbands who used and abused her, the miscarriages that nearly destroyed her dreams, and of her passionate, doomed affair with heartthrob William Holden. And we learn of the woman who really did live up to her saintly image; the megastar who spent her last years as a roving ambassador for UNICEF, helping starving children who didn't even know her name.

Key Information: This is the first full biography of Hepburn since the news of her death saddened millions; Sometimes surprising, occasionally harrowing but always compelling, Harris's biography is at all times respectful but does not shirk the unpleasant episodes in Hepburn's life; Warren G. Harris is a bestseller biographer.
