KIRKUS REVIEW

With the dubious benefit of a few astrology charts and all the movie-magazine back fries, this tells you absolutely nothing you don't know about the ""wholesome,"" shy, ambitious girl who became queen for a day in films (Hitch liked her ""mystic"") and for life as wife of Prince Rainier--to whom she bore three children and served as ideal domestic mate while furthering the tourist attractions of poor little Monaco. British newspaper writer Robyns says her ""impact has not diminished"" which you might question along with gorgeous prose like ""Elizabeth Taylor has spent a lifetime baring her bones [must be her clavicles] across the seven continents. . . Marilyn Monroe exposed her soul like a tiny child with a chronic heat rash. But Grace Kelly always remained true to herself and no one was allowed to penetrate behind her calm blue eyes."" Second-hand trivia about the lucky girl with a pretty face who graduated from Grace Kelly to Her Grace.
