Praise

“We find in these pages all the tenderness and patience, but also the tenacity, of a woman who loves. Consuelo does not seek to explain or even to understand her husband, she accepts him and leads him to what he must be. . . . Written with a strong and authentic voice, The Tale of the Rose is a book to read for its strength of character, and for the adventure that it offers.”Elle

“Pioneering aviator, bestselling writer and romantic idol, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry enjoyed a celebrity in his lifetime that was surpassed only by his fame after death. . . . Now, Consuelo’s side of the story of their stormy thirteen-year marriage has at last become known. In pages weighty with love, passion, betrayal and tragedy, the Salvadorian-born beauty has reclaimed her place in the Saint-Exupéry myth.”The New York Times

“In this memoir we discover that Consuelo is the inspiration as well as the rose of the Little Prince. . . . One of her lovers used to say that with this woman, the danger resides not in her beauty but in her capacity to ensnare a man with words. She bewitches with her voice.Throughout her account of her life with Tonio, as she called him, we hear this fairylike, enchanting voice.”Paris Match

“A great love story that unfolds under thundering skies. . . . We are drawn into a tale full of drama and flair, where the dazzle of the high life is entwined with a tender and tragic hymn to mad, passionate love. . . . It is the greatest love story of the year. Consuelo is a writer of true talent.”Le Point
