Book Description

Aug. 1 1984
They were three generations of magnificent  red-haired beauties born to scandal, bred to success,  bound to a single extraordinary man--Julien Mistral,  the painter, the genius, the lover whose passions  had seared them all. Maggy--Flamboyant mistress of  Mistral's youth, the toast of Paris in the '20s.  Her luminous flesh was immortalized in the  paintings that made Mistral legendary. Teddy--Maggy's  daughter, the incomparable cover girl who lived fast  and left as her legacy Mistral's dazzling love  child. Fauve--Mistral's daughter, the headstrong,  fearless glory girl whose one dark secret drove her  to rule the world of high fashion and to risk  everything in a feverish search for love. From the  '20s Paris of Chanel, Colette, Picasso and Matisse to  New York's sizzling new modeling agencies of the  '50s, to the model ward of the '70s,  Mistral's Daughter captures the explosive  glamour of life at the top of the worlds of art and  high fashion. Judith Krantz has given us a  glittering international tale as spellbinding as her  other celebrated best-sellers,  Scruples, Princess Daisy, I'll Take  Manhattan, Till We Meet Again,  Scruple s Two,  Dazzle, and Lovers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but still good. Sept. 29 2002
Format:Paperback
Judith Krantz has written ten books, and out of those I've read six. This is one of those six, and while I enjoyed reading it, I still wish it was better.
This is the story of a successful painter, Julien Mistral, and his relationships with three women in the span of about 50 years. Maggy Lunel is one of his first nude models, and they share a brief fling. Teddy Lunel is Maggy's daughter from another man, who becomes a big model, falls in love with Mistral and gives birth to his child. Fauve, Teddy and Julien Mistral's daughter, is an aspiring painter like her father, but eventually learns an upsetting fact about her father that forever changes their relationship. This novel, never like any Judith Krantz before or after it, rambles on forever about nothing in particular, and it is very hard to feel you know most of the characters, let alone really care what happens to them. Read it because it's Judith Krantz, but it is by no means her best work.

4.0 out of 5 stars The weakest Krantz, but still entertaining Dec 26 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This one is really melodramatic...IMHO Ms. Krantz should stick to the relatively unsentimantal present day (or at least, post-'80s). The action in this one spans nearly 70 or 80 years, from the turn of the century to the late '70s/early '80s. The main problem is the central figure - in this case, a Picasso-esque artist called Julien Mistral (the Mistral of the title, which is not the infamous mistral wind of Provence, though I guess his character is supposed to be like that wind or something). The heroines are three women - the Maggy, her daughter Teddy, and granddaughter Fauve. Parts of the story are so melodramatic and hokey they will make you laugh out loud, though I don't think that was the author's intention. Still, this is far better than any Romance genre novel out there, and just as romantic as any of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST OF KRANTZ July 22 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book was great! If you love fashion and gossip then Judith Krantz is the author for you. Mistral's Daughter was a splashy read and fun, fun, fun. Krantz has got the fashion world all figured out and her characters are full-fleshed and well-rounded.
Yes, it's got drama, but that's the best part. This is Krantz at her juiciest.
