Synopsis

Harold Robbins, the best-selling master of erotic fiction and high society, takes aim at the fashion industry in his bold tale, Goodbye, Janette. Tanya and her daughters, Janette and Lauren, survive the tortures of prison camp in Europe in World War II to begin a life of high fashion and high society. Tanya plunges headlong into the world of haute couture, building her fortune as she entices men and immortalizes women. Lauren chooses a path of decadence, benefitting from the stunning beauty that makes her a star in the world of glamour and fashion. But her choice to get involved with dangerous people threatens to destroy her. Janette, meanwhile, conquers the demons of her childhood to become a powerful, wealthy, and successful fashion model. The lives of these three sensual and exciting women unfold in one of Harold Robbins' most shockingly erotic novels of all time.
