New Karen Haper in October: The It Girls

YES! Karen Harper has a new book coming out in October and it sounds so good! I'm totally digging the cover too! What do you think?

The It Girls by Karen Harper

Publication Date: October 4, 2017
William Morrow Paperbacks

Genre: Historical Fiction

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 other’s 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 costs—to her marriage and to her children…and then came the fateful night of April 14, 1912 and the scandal that followed.

Elinor’s novels titillate readers, and it’s even asked in polite drawing rooms if you would like to “sin with Elinor Glyn?” Her work pushes the boundaries of what’s 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 sisters—confidants, friends, rivals and the two “It Girls” of their day.


  1. This one sounds really good! I'd read about Lucy Duff-Gordon in The Dressmaker <by Kate Alcott, but I didn't realize she had a sister. Can't wait to read this one!

  2. I also read (and loved) The Dressmaker. This sounds fascinating. It will be on my "to read" list. I would love to review it, if it is available.
