Judith Published by BCA Fauve's plotline, with the Mistral connection, her career managing a modeling agency, her relationship with the now older Maggie, and her romantic relationship with Eric, kept the pace at a brisk clip. Enjoyed the setting: New York City and France. The most interesting character in the book, the smooth and calculating Kate Browning Mistral, was a minor but clever addition to the lineup.

The ending did not disappoint. The Great Lady herself stated that this was her own favorite among her novels, but this was back when she had only published three.

This is also one of her most European novels: Very skillfully done, I must say. I've read this book several times. Most often on airplanes. It's wonderful, fun ,romantic, well written for what it is, a romance novel with a perfect cast of women far more lovely than mere mortals, that makes it all the more fun.

I also love that I share the last name of the main protagonist! Judith Krantz writes with authority about the south of France and the world of art and fashion. It's only slightly dated and will always remain an old favorite never a hesitation if I need a quick beach read. Paperback Verified download. I loved this book. I had seen the tv series many years ago; while it was excellent, the book really held my interest.

Questions?

The parts of the book that detail the life of Teddy, before she was a famous model are very real; you can understand and feel what she felt. Kate's determination to 'hang on' to Mistral is also well internalized; it is easy to relate her to people you may know that have held on when clearly they had lost.

The heartbreak of Mistral, and the attempt to ease that heartbreak through a relationship with Fauve was endearing. While I loved all the Kate sequences, the ones near the end with Nadine were outstanding. Maggy, Teddy, Fauve, Kate and Nadine; one can feel the resentments, hurt, despair, grief and love that flow from these characters. I've loved this book ever since I first read it as a teenager -- the near-tattered paperback was my mother's copy from her younger years.

It got me hooked to Judith Krantz' writing, which is fabulously lush! Read this; you'll adore it.

We seem to have lost that old copy so I bought the Kindle edition. If you ever experience 'dry' reading spells, just crack a Judith Krantz and you'll be back to devouring books in no time.

It seems as though it's been edited to be more in keeping with the current times instead of the 80's when I first read it. One person found this helpful. The characters were different and interesting.

This was truly the definition of a Novel, at almost pages, but I liked that. The characters were different and interesting, albeit shallow.

I picked this book due to it's description as a 'beach read' as I wasn't looking for anything super deeply meaningful, and it fit the bill. Not too deep, not too shallow and I really got involved in the characters.

Though she fades out of the spotlight when Teddy and then Fauve come onto the scene, there is still enough of her in it that you don't miss it much. Maggy is steadfast and reliable and you can see her change— not just because Darcy notices, too.

I loved her proposal scene. Teddy I could not respect for a while. A hedonistic lifestyle is never something I could appreciate. Drinking and partying and flirting with boys just didn't make sense.

And then she fell in love. In a way we know less about Teddy than any of the other girls, and yet… it's alright. She is ridiculously carefree in a way most people don't ever expect to be, and she's wildly happy up until the very end. Fauve grows up loved and sheltered and loved. I loved the descriptions of her as a baby, her meetings with her father… and I loved her ball, when she meets 'Roland. And she's spellbinding and joyous.

I read this book when I was seventeen. Fauve falls in love and becomes an adult at sixteen. And she does it in a way that's more accessible to me than Maggy's growing up escaping from home or Teddy's growing up losing her lifestyle.

Mistral's Daughter

Fauve becomes grown up by losing her faith in her father. Mistral I could not understand. I was never as passionate about anything as he is.
