Book review: Fall from Grace

I love a good rag to riches story. And this one surely didn’t disappoint. So the story is about a woman named Sydney whose husband dies and didn’t change the will. Well, Sydney had been married before and was a fashion designer, she divorced her first husband and she has two daughters. Then years later she marries a man named Andrew who was wealthy and wanted her to quit her job so she could take care of her daughter and him. Sydney and Andrew had been married for years when Andrew dies in a motorcycle accident. Andrew never changed his will when he got married so everything went to his daughter from a previous marriage. And these stepdaughters are as evil as can be. Sydney’s step daughters told her she has so many days to leave the home. Sydney has no job and little money to her name, but she finds a shoebox apartment that she can afford for the time being. The only thing that she has left from her dead husband is the clothes that she owns, jewelry, and an apartment in Paris. She goes to Paris to try and sell the apartment. On her way back she meets a man seated next to her who happens to be in the fashion industry. They strike up a conversation and he gives her his business card. Sydney can’t find work in the fashion industry because she has been out of the game for 20 years. She remembers she has this man’s card that they met on the plane so she gives him a call. Her daughters tell her not to work for this man, but Sydney doesn’t listen. She needs a job and she needs it now. She ends up working for this shady fashion designer who makes her life go from bad to worse………. This is a must-read.
