I have enjoyed reading this book repeatedly since it first was printed in paperback. Sometimes the story line gets a little sappy with romance, but it is a good view into the worlds of fashion and retail.
This should be the gold standard for erotic romance. The main character has the satisfying ugly-duckling-into-swan transformation and the story manages to include the most exciting cities in the world as backdrops. If you love fashion, travel, and hot love scenes, this is a must-read.
I read this book in high school in the 70s. I have never forgotton the story or the characters. Great writing amd story. Enjoy!
I was intrigued by the main character's ability to step into each different role life presented her. It was as if watching a flower from budding to opening to fading. Packed with emotion, ambition and eventual reality. I couldn't put it down.
