Audrey: The Life of Audrey Hepburn

I got this book for next to nothing at a book sale and was pleasantly surprised when I cracked it open and read it. As a biography, I was expecting a dry sequence of dates, names, and places, but Charles Higham did Audrey more justice than that. It is factually yet descriptively written, actually quite beautifully written at times. 
The book covers Audrey's childhood to the end of her career in film. In particular, I enjoyed learning about what led her to entering the film industry, as well as the shocking situations she was in as a child working with the Dutch resistance during WWII. It's a captivating read!
