About this title

Synopsis:

Other friends reacted differently to her decision to move to Los Angeles. But less dramatically! Kitten perceived negativism towards the United States of America of the Sixties. No one had said anything bad about her moving to Rome in the past. Aside from elders' backbiters' slanderous remarks about Kitten being pregnant, youngsters had praised her for her choice. This time, comments abounded as if she was heading for the moon. As if she were about to reach a point of no return.-"With this decision, you have ratted on your past!" declared a friend of hers she was particularly fond of.-"You have forsworn your ancestors. You have betrayed Paris!" said another. Amazingly enough, these deeply rooted bourgeois had admitted Kitten in their closed-in Parisian circle. In their minds, Rome had belonged to France once. Vogue Magazine was an extremely chic advocate of French fashion. Yet, at twenty-three, the girl-who was about to move on-had lived more years outside France! Outside Paris to be exact! It was as if her entourage knew nothing of her birthplace, her childhood stage, and her many school years abroad. Everyone was outraged by her eminent departure.

Product Description:

During World War II, American Red Cross workers save the life of Caroline ?Kitten? Descournay, a sickly French baby living in North Africa with her family. Upon realizing the gift she has been bestowed, a grown-up Kitten determines to repay her debt to the United States.

Growing up in postwar Europe, Kitten realizes her family?s traditions have lost their luster and purpose. Single and free, she feels detached enough to leave her parents and a brilliant future in Paris behind, much to their chagrin. When she emigrates to the United States in the late Sixties, Kitten steps into an American life where everything seems to burst with energy and dynamism under a lack of authority. Armed with an old-world education and upbringing, she lives life to it?s fullest.

The Emperor?s Bracelet portrays Kitten?s descent from riches to rags to fulfill her goal of becoming a U.S. citizen.
