This short biography of Audrey Hepburn is a delight! It is a brief account of her life during WWII and how she became an actress. More importantly, it recounts her down-to-earth attitude and her kindness to others. The book is illustrated and the pictures are delightful. If anyone has seen Audrey Hepburn movies you will recognize the beautiful costumes she has worn. I recommend this book to everyone, you don’t have to have been her fan to appreciate the story and the pictures excellently rendered.
