ENTER... the worlds of Eve de Lancel and her daughters, Freddy and Delphine: Paris in the last years of the Belle Epoque; the thrilling backstage intrigue of the music hall; the romance of great vineyards and a towered chateau in Champagne: the adventure of Hollywood in the glamorous 1930s; the dramas of life in England and France during World War II; the pulsing excitement of booming Los Angeles after the war - all this is part of the lives of three extra-ordinary women who never failed to accept a risk - joyously...
Eve dared to bring endless scandal upon herself when she ran away from her conventional home to live in unrepentant sin; to win stardom singing at the leading music hall in paris; to risk her life at the front during World War I; to marry the Vicomte Paul de Lancel, a high-ranking diplomat, and to become the greatest lady of Champagne.
Freddy dared to defy her outraged parents and learn to fly in secret; to solo on her sixteenth birthday; to compete fearlessly in air races against the greatest pilots of the late 1930s; to fly for England during six years of World War II; to challenge a Messerschmitt in a unarmed Spitfire; to build a great aviation company in California; to love deeply and lose as gallantly as she won; to discover what lay beyond the horizon.
Delphine dared to live a secret life of wild nightclubbing and illegal gambling when Hollywood was at its memorable height; to make a screen test on a whim and become a famous movie star before her eighteenth birthday; to remain in Occupied France during the war because of her enduring love for the one man she could never impress - or forget.
Live like the uniquely romantic de Lancel women, with reckless courage, unconquerable humor, exuberant hearts, extravagant inborn style and never, ever a regret, except - perhaps - for the xcore of men whose hearts they break.
This book club edition hardback is in very good condition. The dust cover shows some wear and flaws.
