Story of three sisters raised by their grandmother, an internationally successful romance novelist, teaching them to believe in love, tradition and a women's identity.
"Which one of you bitches is my mother?" Four elegant, successful, and sophisticated women in their forties are called to New York's Pierre Hotel to meet Lili -- a beautiful, young, and notoriously temperamental Hollywood movie star. None of the women knows exactly why she is there; each has a reason to hate Lili and each of them is astonished to see the others. They are old friends who share a guilty secret and who have for years been doing their best to keep that secret quiet. Their lives are changed forever, however, when Lili suddenly confronts them. When the women refuse to answer her, Lili proceeds to travel around the world through the playgrounds of the rich and famous, seeking to answer the question that has obsessed and almost destroyed her. From Paris to London, from the boardroom to the bedroom, Lace takes the reader into the rarified world of five unforgettable women who are as beautiful, as complex and as strong as...lace.
LILI, INTERNATIONAL STAR, IRRESISTIBLE BEAUTY... KIDNAPPED IN THE LABYRITHS OF ISTANBUL! Lili commands whatever she desires. Any luxury. Any privilege. Anybody. Only one man eludes her...a man whose long-forgotten act of passion has shaped her fate...her father. Now, on a worldwide search, Lili is stalking a handful of powerful men. From New York to Paris to the wild, exotic Middle East, her journey brings her closer to the man she must find--until, one morning, she disappears. A ransom note brings the unforgettable characters of Lace together again to share Lili's ultimate ordeal--a struggle of desire and obsession, of wealth and love--to uncover the shocking truth Lili's mother wanted to hide forever!
Five women, transformed from wives of the powerful rich executives to widows in the jungle, come face to face with the savage inside themselves.
