To the world, Audrey Hepburn was the epitome of elegance and grace. With a fragile radiance and natural charm, she restyled the image of the Hollywood glamour girl, becoming an icon of dignity, charity, and goodness. But to her son, she was much more, a woman who invested her heart and soul into being a mother. Here in a personal reflection of a truly wonderful life, Sean Hepburn Ferrer's account illuminates not only his loving relationship with his mother, but the steadfast bond between an actress and the millions who admired her. It is the moving potrayal of a woman whose tireless devotion to those less fortunate made her one of the world's most respected humanitarians. Here is Audrey Hepburn, the forgiving daughter with a father she never knew; the insecure actress who attributed her extraordinary success to the talents of others; the selfless ambassador of UNICEF who devoted her last years of life to fighting for the rights of children around the world; and the mother whose boundless enthusiasm for the simple pleasures in life gave joy to everyone who shared them with her.
