Publisher's Summary

The career of Stefanie Powers is one of so many stage, screen, and television credits that her name alone recalls memories as varied as her roles-on screen and off. From movie roles including John Wayne's daughter in McLintock! and Lana Turner's rival in Love Has Many Faces, to being terrorized by Tallulah Bankhead in Die, Die My Darling and befriending a Volkswagen in Herbie Rides Again, she stepped onto the television screen as the sexy secret agent April Dancer in The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. and the jet-setting, crime-solving wife of Robert Wagner in Hart to Hart.
She is also an award-winning stage actress, fitness advocate, and an internationally recognized animal conservationist.
A natural beauty groomed for show business at an early age, Stefanie Powers began her career at the tail end of the Studio System, a dynamic education in star quality and Hollywood history she happily admits was, "one hell of a ride." Privileged to have worked with some of the greatest names in the Hollywood firmament, Stephanie tells of the time she broke down in tears at a party over her divorce from actor Gary Lockwood, only to be comforted with a cocktail and the hard-won, been-there advice from two guests she had never met: Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner.
This is One from the Hart, Stefanie Powers's story of a resourceful, empowered, and atypical celebrity life, told with all the candor, wit, and wisdom that have come to embody the woman herself.

Such a touching book about a wonderful actress.

I loved this book and it was even better since it was narrated by Stefanie Powers...I had read the book but got more out of listening to it. You won't be disappointed.

Absolutely Wonderful!

I have been a Stefanie Powers super fan since I fell in love with Hart to Hart as a tween. I own and have read One From the Hart and when I saw that Stefanie Powers narrated the audio version I knew I had to have it as well - and I was blown away. I cried, I laughed and I have found a whole new level of respect, love and gratitude for her.
My family had always joked with me when i was a young teen how I want to be Stefanie when I grew up...I honestly can say that if I could just be a little like her I would have a life well lived.
She has always been my idol and listening to her story told by her has only solidified that even more.
I know I will be listening to this one numerous times!
