ABOUT THE BOOK

Audrey Hepburn was a rare beauty who managed to be just as graceful and captivating on the inside as she was on the outside. Her lithe dancer's body, large dark eyes and effortlessly chic clothing have made Hepburn a fashion icon for decades, no matter how many other trends may come and go. At the same time, Hepburns refined and charming personality captured her fans' hearts, and her charity work was an important part of her life up until her final years.

With her characteristic and unique blend of tomboy, ballerina and socialite personas, Hepburn worked hard to make her way into the ranks of Hollywood A-listers, but never forgot to stay true to her roots and genuinely care for those in need. After a childhood that was marked with tragedy and hardship, from losing her father to enduring the trials of World War II, Hepburn persevered and quickly became a role model for many people. She showed the world that it was possible to have a blend of poise and playfulness, to be a movie star and a humanitarian at the same time.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

In the late 1980's, however, Hepburn turned her attention to charity work and humanitarian projects. Ever since her own struggles in the war, Hepburn had been focused on UNICEF's efforts, usually by acting as a spokesperson. Now that her movie career was over, Hepburn was able to travel and work firsthand with the struggling and underserved populations of countries such as Ethiopia and Turkey. She traveled the world to help with UNICEF's education programs and relief efforts. Hepburn also used her celebrity to bring attention to the problems of struggling countries and population, solidifying her reputation as, not just a beautiful face, but also as a dedicated and kind-hearted diplomat and humanitarian.

In 1992, following a trip to Somalia, Hepburn felt concerned about some strange abdominal pains. When she went to a medical professional, her whole family was stunned to learn that Hepburn had a rare form of abdominal cancer. It had already spread too far for surgery to be successful. Knowing that she was nearing her final days, Hepburn and her family went to Switzerland to spend time together. Hepburn died in her sleep on January 20, 1993, leaving behind not just a family who mourned her beautiful and warm presence, but also a whole world that would miss the generous and inimitable Audrey Hepburn...
