Mistral's Daughterby Judith Krantz
They were three generations of magnificent red-haired beauties born to scandal, bred to success, bound to a single extraordinary man--Julien Mistral, the painter, the genius, the lover whose passions had seared them all. Maggy--Flamboyant mistress of Mistral's youth, the toast of Paris in the '20s. Her luminous flesh was immortalized in the paintings that made Mistral legendary. Teddy--Maggy's daughter, the incomparable cover girl who lived fast and left as her legacy Mistral's dazzling love child. Fauve--Mistral's daughter, the headstrong, fearless glory girl whose one dark secret drove her to rule the world of high fashion and to risk everything in a feverish search for love. From the '20s Paris of Chanel, Colette, Picasso and Matisse to New York's sizzling new modeling agencies of the '50s, to the model ward of the '70s, Mistral's Daughter captures the explosive glamour of life at the top of the worlds of art and high fashion. Judith Krantz has given us a glittering international tale as spellbinding as her other celebrated best-sellers, Scruples, Princess Daisy, I'll Take Manhattan, Till We Meet Again, Scruple s Two, Dazzle, and Lovers.

A intresting look on what things were like for three independent women throughout the 20th century.
Waste of time.
This book is fairly predictable, but it's an enjoyable read. I've read it a couple times. I think I appreciate the glimpse into the world of high fashion, as well as Europe in a long glimpse of the 1900's.
This is a good story written in the language of the romance novel. Not great literature, but certainly an entertaining book.
