This book covers the era in France from 1930 to 1940 in the Cote d’Azur & Rivera areas. not just a bio of Chanel but the life that she shared with the rich and famous. It is a view of the life after the Nazi’s took over… different from Erick Larson’s Splendid and the Vile which took place in England. Intriguing part of Chanel’s life at the time and well researched by the author. Fascinating and highly recommend as are all of Anne De Courcy’s books 5 STARS!
Two high school graduates, with only the funds from their bicycle shop, go up against those with post-graduate educations and government grants and other funding.
Their investigative approach, the depth of their study of theory and perseverance take them through multiple trials until they succeed, but then they face the challenge of proof and demonstration worldwide.
Guess who did not believe them… You must read the book to find out!
Their approach personifies the grit and determination that made America great!
