From Goodreads:

My Review

This is a lovely little book perfect for all fans of Audrey old or new, as the photos alone are wonderful.

This is isn’t a memoir, but rather a look at Audrey through her character, and thoughts on life. It includes lots of lovely quotes from her, her family, friends and co-stars.

I think it would make a perfect present for birthdays, Christmas or just as a treat to yourself. I do recommend you buy it in print rather than digital, so that you can truly appreciate all the beautiful photos.

Thanks so much to NetGalley and Rowman & Littlefield for my digital copy, which I chose to review.

    A hardback for my sister in law for Christmas would be great. (and for me too!) Such a lovely cover. Audrey was a tireless worker for children around the globe and I am fascinated to know her take on life.
