Award-winning author Judithe Little joins Books on Tap Live to discuss her forthcoming novel, The Chanel Sisters, a remarkable story of survival, love, loss, triumph—and the sisters who changed fashion forever.

From abandoned orphans cast on a convent orphanage by their father after the death of their mother to business owners on the rue Cambon in Paris to, ultimately, establishing the Chanel name as one of the most iconic among fashion houses, this historical novel paints a riveting portrait of two ambitious, indomitable women. Meticulously researched and masterfully told, this heartbreaking yet triumphant tale traces Antoinette and Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's determined climb out of poverty and the choices they are forced to make when their lives are irrevocably changed by the outbreak of the First World War.
