The It Girls: A Novel | Karen Harper
24 posts | 12 read | 35 to read
From New York Times bestselling author Karen Harper comes a novel based on the lives of two amazing sisters . . . One sailed the Titanic and started a fashion empire . . . The other overtook Hollywood and scandalized the world . . . Together, they were unstoppable. They rose from genteel poverty, two beautiful sisters, ambitious, witty, seductive. Elinor and Lucy Sutherland are at once each others fiercest supporters and most vicious critics. Lucy transformed herself into Lucile, the daring fashion designer who revolutionized the industry with her flirtatious gowns and brazen self-promotion. And when she married Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon her life seemed to be a fairy tale. But success came at many coststo her marriage and to her children . . . and then came the fateful night of April 14, 1912 and the scandal that followed. Elinors novels titillate readers, and its even asked in polite drawing rooms if you would like to sin with Elinor Glyn? Her work pushes the boundaries of whats acceptable; her foray into the glittering new world of Hollywood turns her into a world-wide phenomenon. But although she writes of passion, the true love she longs for eludes her. But despite quarrels and misunderstandings, distance and destiny, there is no bond stronger than that of the two sistersconfidants, friends, rivals and the two It Girls of their day.

We had our monthly meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub today 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Anyone else besides @BookBabe read the above book?! Accompaniment this cold and gray afternoon was: scrambled eggs, bacon, cinnamon-raisin toast, and hot tea. MMMmmmm 😋!

SassyBookworm I have read The It Girls! I really enjoyed it! I‘m a huge historical fiction fan! I listened to the audiobook. It was kinda sad how though the sister both achieved what they wanted out of life but their personal lives really suffered (edited) 9mo

I was quite excited to read this book, yet it was quite unmemorable with a lacking storyline.

This was a very interesting book. Reminded me of the book The Girls in the Picture. Not necessary in content but the way the story was written with similar main characters being strong women. It was great to see, even though strained at times, the relationship between these two sisters who worked hard to make their dreams reality while at times losing focus on reality.

Review of THE IT GIRLS.

The cover is dazzling just like the two main characters.
If you enjoy determined women, fashion, and books, you will love THE IT GIRLS. 4/5

A TEASER. "THE IT GIRLS is set in the late 1800's.

If you enjoy cheering on women who most likely led the way for all women to make a name for themselves, then you won't want to miss reading THE IT GIRLS.

The cover is dazzling just like the two main characters.4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own."

rubyslippersreads I can't wait to read this! It has connections to two of my favorite things—Titanic and "The Music Man." ? 2y
SilversReviews @rubyslippersreads it was very good. Enjoy when you read it. 😎 2y
