Publisher's Summary

In 1944, newly married Copper Reilly arrives in Paris soon after the liberation. While the city celebrates its freedom, she's stuck in the prison of an unhappy marriage. When her husband commits one betrayal too many, Copper demands a separation.
Alone in Paris, she finds an unlikely new friend: an obscure, middle-aged designer from the back rooms of a decaying fashion house whose timid nature and reluctance for fame clash with the bold brilliance of his designs. His name is Christian Dior.
Realising his genius, Copper urges Dior to strike out on his own, helping to pull him away from his insecurities and towards stardom. With just a camera and a typewriter, she takes her own advice and ventures into the wild and colourful world of fashion journalism.
Soon Copper finds herself torn between two very different suitors, questioning who she is and what she truly wants. As the city rebuilds and opulence returns, can Copper make a new, love-filled life for herself?

Good story, some parts felt forced and unnecessary

Overall, this was an enjoyable story. I felt that the lesbian storyline was too forced and wasn't necessary to the overall story. Love the portrayal of Dior and his friends.

One of the best books I️ have read this year. Simply fabulous must be enjoyed

I listen to books every day as I commute to and from work. This is one of the best stories I’ve heard recently. It is performed perfectly and leaves the reader wanting more. A terrific author wrote a terrific story in the midst of some fantastic historical fiction.
