A Memoir of Women in PariseBook - 2009
At a turning point in her life, Lucinda Holdforth journeys to Paris and takes a very personal tour through the lives, loves, and losses of its most celebrated women. From Colette to Nancy Mitford, Marie Antoinette to Coco Chanel, Napoleon's Josephine to Edith Wharton, all were rule-breakers and style-setters. Utterly diverse, they shared one common passion: Paris. Exploring the city in their footsteps, Holdforth, and readers, gain inspiration from the women who created and nurtured the world's most civilized city.
