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.
