Product Details


“Written with a strong and authentic voice…We find in these pages all the tenderness and patience, but also the tenacity, of a woman who loves.”

“Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote The Little Prince, inspired by a formidable princess called Consuelo. The drama and passionate romance sublimated beneath the children’s fairy tale is here, revealed in her memoir. What a life!”
—Isaac Mizrahi

“A poetic memoir of their tempestuous marriage…Consuelo…writes, with style and courage, for grown-ups.”
Entertainment Weekly

“In pages weighty with love, passion, betrayal and tragedy, the Salvadoran-born beauty has reclaimed her place in the Saint-Exupéry myth.”
The New York Times
