Women's Fiction Historical
From New York Times bestselling author Karen Harper comes
a novel based on the lives of two amazing sisters . . .
One sailed the Titanic and started a fashion empire . . .
The other overtook Hollywood and scandalized the world .
Together, they were unstoppable.
They rose from genteel poverty, two beautiful sisters,
ambitious, witty, seductive. Elinor and Lucy Sutherland
are at once each otherâ€™s fiercest supporters and most
Lucy transformed herself into Lucile, the daring fashion
designer who revolutionized the industry with her
flirtatious gowns and brazen self-promotion. And when she
married Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon her life seemed to be a
fairy tale. But success came at many costsâ€”to her
marriage and to her children . . . and then came the
fateful night of April 14, 1912 and the scandal that
Elinorâ€™s novels titillate readers, and itâ€™s even asked in
polite drawing rooms if you would like to â€śsin with
Elinor Glyn?â€ť Her work pushes the boundaries of whatâ€™s
acceptable; her foray into the glittering new world of
Hollywood turns her into a world-wide phenomenon. But
although she writes of passion, the true love she longs
for eludes her.
But despite quarrels and misunderstandings, distance and
destiny, there is no bond stronger than that of the two
sistersâ€”confidants, friends, rivals and the two â€śIt
Girlsâ€ť of their day.
