It is the story of a girl who was shy and withdrawn, with few friends to play with. Her father, Aristotle Onassis, was a self-made billionaire who had overcome great odds in his quest for wealth.
CHRISTINA ONASSIS relates that after some schooling at exclusive private schools in England and Switzerland, Christina began to enjoy the life of a billionaire’s daughter - shopping in Paris, partying in London, skiing in St. Moritz, and sunbathing in Monte Carlo.
The fast life led to a weight struggle that contributed to her early death. In the 1970s, Christina lost her brother in a plane crash, her mother to a drug overdose and her father to a degenerative muscle disease - leaving her the sole heir to her father’s fortune. Her four marriages all ended in divorce. But one produced her daughter, Athina - the one event in which she found true happiness. After Christina’s own death at 37, her entire $2 to $3 billion fortune went to Athina.
Insightful, revealing interviews include friends, family and teachers.
