The Chanel Sisters by Judithe Little.

Today is release day for the greatly anticipated The Chanel Sisters by Judithe Little!

“A lovely, gorgeously set, romantic story sure to charm lovers of historical fiction with its joie de vivre and savoir faire.”

I had the pleasure of reviewing this gorgeous novel for the New York Journal of Books:

“In Judithe Little’s beguiling The Chanel Sisters, the road to personal fulfillment starts with a dream. Sisters Gabrielle, Julia-Berthe, and Antoinette have much to overcome. They are left to fend for themselves pre-pubescence, when their mother dies and their father, known widely as a rootless “seducteur,” deposits them at an Aubazine, France, orphanage with false promises but never looks back.”

Full Review Here in the New Yok Journal of Books: a book review by Claire Fullerton: The Chanel Sisters: A Novel (

THE CHANEL SISTERS: Picked by Good Morning America and Zibby Owens as “One of 13 books to cozy up to over the holidays.”

High praise for The Chanel Sisters:

“Admirable…Consistently fascinating. Little’s story of two indomitable women offers an eye-opening account of the unsung Antoinette and her pivotal role in her famed sister’s success. Fashion aficionados in particular will appreciate this take on the life of a legend.”
