Grace Kelly encapsulates the Cinderella and American dream. Grace grew up in Philadelphia in a prominent family. But her parents were not keen on her Hollywood ambitions. Nonetheless, she became one of the most famous actresses of all time. She was a star in the days of Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and on and on. In fact, she went on to win both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for her role in “The Country Girl, ” beating out Judy Garland in her role in “A Star Is Born.” Holy cow.
I became transformed once Grace met and married Prince Ranier of Monaco. Grace became every little girls dream: an American Princess. She definitely paved the way for the most recent actress to princess transition: Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry. We all sure do love a royal wedding. But we must ask ourselves, Was Grace happy? She was a very lonely princess always trying to make everyone else complete.
Kerri Maher traveled to Monaco to do research so she could make her novel as real as possible. She did a great job. I was transformed. She had a conversation with a cab driver that totally helped her understand how the people of Monaco felt about Grace. They absolutely adored her. It took time, and was not overnight though….
We know the ending of this story but not much about the middle. I think you are going to so enjoy reading about Grace. This might be a novel but, it’s got so much reality..
My copy for giveaway is being provided by Berkley which is a division of Penguin Random House publishing. I can’t thank them enough.
