Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

What if Princess Diana hadn't died? Diana's life and marriage were fairy tale and nightmare. Adored by millions, in her personal life she suffered heartbreak and betrayal. Within a life of privilege, she frequently felt trapped and alone. Constrained by protocol and precedent, she refused to follow the rules. Untold Story takes the life of the world's most famous woman as a point of departure, examining the past and imagining a future. The fictional princess who is the novel's heroine is at breaking point and, believing that the Establishment is plotting her assassination, she makes an irrevocable decision: to stage her own death and begin a new life under an assumed identity. After a period of intense upheaval, Lydia (as she is known) settles in small town America and establishes a fragile peace. It is threatened by thoughts of what she has lost: not the glamour and glitz of royalty but that which is most precious - her children. She is, at least, safe in the knowledge - having altered her appearance and ten years after her 'death' - that her secret will never be uncovered. But then a chance encounter with a member of the paparazzi robs her of that certainty. Will he recognize her? Should she flee or remain calm? Is there anyone she can trust and turn to, or will she inevitably be betrayed? Untold Story is a novel about family and friendship, intrigue and obsession, the meaning of identity, and the peculiar calamity of fame.

Inhaltsangabe:

What if Princess Diana hadn’t died?

What if the tragedy in the Alma Tunnel never happened, and she were still alive today? Where would she be, and what would she be doing?

Diana’s life and marriage were fairy tale and nightmare rolled into one. Adored by millions, in her personal life she suffered heartbreak and betrayal. Within a life of privilege, she frequently felt trapped and alone. Surrounded by glamour and glitz and the constant attentions of the press, she fought to carve a meaningful role for herself in helping the needy and dispossessed. Constrained by protocol and precedent, she refused to follow the rules. The contradictions and pressures of her situation fuelled her increasingly reckless behaviour, but her stature and her connection with her public never ceased to grow.

Had she lived, what direction would her life have taken? How would she have matured into her 40s and beyond?

Untold Story takes the life of the world’s most famous woman as a point of departure, imagining a future and examining the nature of celebrity, the meaning of identity, and the need to find one’s place in the world. Like Diana, the fictional princess who is the novel’s heroine, is both icon and iconoclast. Will she ever find peace and happiness in her own life, or will the curse of fame always be too great?
