Internationally renowned actress Ingrid Bergman was of Swedish and German descent, though she was known by the majority as Swedish. Three times an Oscar recipient, especially known for Casablanca, Murder on the Orient Express, Gaslight, Notorious, and Anastasia, she is considered one of the greatest actresses of all time. Though she hailed from Europe, she also had relatives in the United States. Ingrid kept in close contact with her aunt Blenda, her father's sister, as well as Blenda's son Carl and grandson Norman. Ingrid and Norman exchanged letters and met in different locations throughout the USA, France, and England. This book chronicles her relationship with her American relatives through original letters and recollections of Ingrid's American cousin Norman.
