I had been wanting to find out more about Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn ever since I saw a television programme about her before Christmas.

The show looked at her career as well as her personal life and spoke to those who had worked with her.

I decided to try and find a biography that captured Audrey Hepburn perfectly and this one did the job.

The author researched her very well in this major study of the actress and found her to be as delightful in real life as the characters she portrays on screen.

I didn’t realise she was born into the Dutch aristocracy and having risked her life for the Dutch resistance movement, later fled to England to train as a dancer.

Success came later for Hepburn when she starred in films like ‘Roman Holiday’ and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

I hadn’t realised how much heartache she had suffered in her personal life through her failed marriages and fight against cancer.

I really enjoyed learning some things I didn’t know about her. Anyone who is a fan of Audrey Hepburn will enjoy this book.
