Grace Kelly’s life was a storybook American tale. A radiantly beautiful girl born to immigrants—the daughter of a self-made millionaire—she grew up to become one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. The fairy tale continued when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco and became the mother of two princesses and a son who today is the ruler of that glittering principality. In TRUE GRACE, Wendy Leigh follows Kelly’s breathtaking rise to Hollywood fame, as well as her glamorous life as Princess Grace of Monaco, but also records the dark side of the dream.
Among the many revelations in the book:
• Grace’s romances with producer Robert Evans, tennis player Sidney Wood, department store heir Barney Strauss, with the son of High Society author, Philip Barry, with Tony Curtis, and her deep relationship with actor David Niven, which lasted until her death
• How she had simultaneous romances with High Noon star, Gary Cooper, and the movie’s director Fred Zimmerman
