KIRKUS REVIEW

Report repeated from the March 15th bulletin, as follows ""A lustrous, you might almost say fatuous, account of the transition from Grace Kelly of Philadelphia to Her Grace of Monaco which brought with it, along with the possessive pronoun, a small realm and a great love. As a shy, serious but determined girl, anxious to act on the stage but succeeding on television- then in the movies where she achieved a rapid rise to stardom, Grace is seen as she worked steadily, and really earned the Academy Award which came with Country Girl. The Prince's arrival in the States, and the proposal after three dates: the trousseau; the trip; and all the festivities of the ceremonies and their 'eye-filling beauty' complete the dream come true, not only for Grace, but for the many who followed the proceedings day by day and column by column. This is just that sort of a biography- press release or woman's page- and it should satisfy the shopgirl romanticism of the many women who will want to attend The Wedding a second time. Numerically, they are probably not to be minimized.
