A novel of survival, love, loss, triumph—and the sisters who changed fashion forever
Abandoned at a convent at a young age, Antoinette and Gabrielle Chanel are kept on a tight leash. While they are good girls all day, at night they sneak out their hidden little novellas and read about fashion and cut out styles and clothes they want.
They dream of making something of themselves. Finally of age to leave they do what they must to succeed. Society may never accept them, but they will be wearing the Chanel label forever!
This was a very interesting book. Part fact part fiction. I have recently read another book about CoCo and found this one to be more well rounded and giving us a look at all the Chanel sisters and what drove them to become a success. These were some brave and admirable ladies whose legacy continues strong today!
