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.
