Barely over 160 pages, this is the 'true' story of the former Princess of Wales, Diana (nee Spencer). After her death, it was revealed that Morton's primary source for this book was Diana herself.
There are two sides to every story -- and as fond as I am of Diana (for whatever reason), this is her story. Charles is painted in a poor light as I suppose would be expected if Diana's telling her story. While there's probably some truth in these stories, I don't think it's the full truth.
This short book is an easy read. I did get a chuckle at the appendix at the end of the book: "Could Charles & Diana divorce?" Some of the questions, especially those about Charles' remarriage, are rather amusing to read now since he married Camilla earlier this year.
The sudden and tragic death of Princess Diana caused the world to reflect on how much this singular woman meant to us all. This new edition of her life story -- which includes Diana's personal recollections in her own words, as well as an account of the events surrounding her death -- poignantly strengthens her hold on our hearts.
From her fairy-tale wedding and the births of her two wonderful boys to the stunning collapse of her marriage, Diana's luminous but troubled life transfixed millions. Despite enduring heartbreak, illness, and depression, she never wavered in her commitment to the less fortunate, or in her determination to make a better life for herself and her sons. This revealing book is the closest we will ever come to her autobiography -- a lasting and powerful testament to her courage and spirit.
