This story unravels the pitfalls and challenges of a seamstress in the couture houses in Paris. It is beautifully written and engages the reader early on. You don't have to be a fashion lover to enjoy this tale. Anyone interested in Coco Chanel will enjoy the descriptions and discipline that her fashion house thrived on but the story is really about the character Isabel surviving all the challenges in her life.
