About this title


The story of Lilli Landau's rise to power, wealth, and international fame as the founder of the world's most successful cosmetics empire traces her journey from the mountains of Bohemia to the salons of Paris

From Publishers Weekly:

Lilli Landau, covert Jew and natural daughter of a British viscount, decamps at age 16 from Aunt Sara's millinery-cum-cosmetic establishment in Bohemia to Sydney, Australia, with American adventurer Jacques Laval. The shop she starts is soon transformed into a maison de beaute and Lilli herself into a princess whose line of creams and ointments softens the skins of a rich and famous clientele. Lilli imperturbably amasses millions, divorces the ne'er-do-well Jacques, singlehandedly raises two gorgeous kids and survives the crash of '29 and two world wars. She marries one of the many noblemen who seek her hand, and short-lived though her gratification isher prince is homosexualLillifinally discovers true love with her business adviser, who has long been hovering in the wings. If Lilli lacks a third dimension, it will scarcely be noticed amidst the glamour and abundance that Ellis (Maison Jennie has strewn along her heroine's path.
