Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of A Woman of Substance.

Three generations of beautiful women and their journeys from rags to riches.

Audra is an impoverished children's nanny from Leeds who sacrificed everything for her only daughter.

Christina is a talented art student who won world renown as a fashion designer - yet who has known pain and heartache.

Kyle is a rebellious young woman who chafes against her mother's success - and in whom her grandmother's spirit of duty and sacrifice is reborn.

Moving from the bleak Yorkshire Dales, through London, to the glamorous world of haute couture, this classic novel sparkles as it entertains.

Amazing story. A must have.

This is a fabulous book to listen to. From the first to the last chapter. I could not stop listening. I felt as though I was living the story. I will listen many more times. Thank you.
