Vreeland writes another of her novels based on real people, this time Louis Tiffany, one of his designers Clara Driscoll and ‘her girls’ who crafted his windows and lampshades. It’s also a beautifully told story of New York City in the Gilded Age at the turn of the Twentieth Century. The unfairness of being a professional woman is central to this book but has parallels even now a hundred years later. Think about it. Otherwise, it’s a good story of friendship, loyalty and beautiful things.
