Follow the life of the fabulous designer Coco Chanel is this beautifully written book - a tale as carfully tailored as her garments.

Gabrielle learned to hand sew from her mother. And as Coco watched her mother become frail and ill her lessons became a saving grace, a craft that saved her and her sister. Unfortunatly it did not save her mother - who died when they were young girls leaving them to their uncaring father.

Coco and her younger sister were placed in a convent school by a cold, lying father whose shadow would haunt her from that day forward. Her life and loves were nothing in comparison to her talent and vision. Check out this amazing life!
