Synopsis

Heaven, Hell and Mademoiselle by Harold Carlton

1968, Paris. Four young hopefuls are following their dreams, making their way in the ruthless world of haute couture. Seamstress Monique, standing with her tatty suitcase in her hand, watching shop assistants spray Chanel No 5 in the street outside Coco's world-famous store.

Can all her dreams come true in this magical place? Christopher, London born and bred, the handsome up-and-coming designer, determined to leave his mark on the city where glamour and power go hand in hand, and every man has a mistress. Samantha, the daddy's girl with an uncanny eye for PR; Samantha understands what sells - sex, sex and more sex. But can a loud, brash American ever conquer the sophisticated wives of Paris? And hauntingly beautiful Sophie, the top model with her face in a thousand magazines and the world at her feet, but a secret in her past that won't stay buried...Four lives collide in the dizzying world of French fashion as Harold Carlton weaves a spellbinding tale of ambition, passion and rivalry.

Reviews

'For a light summer read I recommend Heaven, Hell and Mademoiselle, a novel by Harold Carlton, set in the world of Paris Haute Couture in the late 1960s.' -April 2010 -- LIZ JONES 'It's a super, intelligent read.' - May 2010 STAR MAGAZINE 'Follow the fortunes of Monique, Christopher, Sophie and Samantha - and expect back-stabbing, sex and lots of Chanel. Christopher is the butt of many laugh-out-loud moments - particularly his encounter with an older woman who shows him a new meaning for dessert! Frivolous, rude, sun-lounger froth.' - July 2010 PRIMA 'A charming diversion, a book to take on holiday to escape the everyday. .If you'd like a mental break ... take a visit to the fashion world in Paris in turbulent 1968...' - 2010 AUSTRALIAN WOMAN'S WEEKLY'

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
