Passion Flowers by David Ritz (Fair Condition)
"Meet the Faith women: ...Georgia, an extraordinary, sensual nineteen-year-old beauty who arrives in Hollywood in 1945, determined to become a star, who is a magnet for men - white and black - and a thorn in the side of the movie establishment....Chanel, Georgia's voluptuous love-child, who comes of age in the 1960s, a spirited soul who finds fulfillment in the power of her incredible voice - a rich gospel sound that her mother can neither understand nor compete with....Marisa, a woman of the 1990s in a world rich in the opportunities denied Georgia and Chanel. A "now" woman of bi-racial heritage, she revels in every minute of her life, coming into her daredevil beauty at seventeen and striking out as an international recording artist before the age of twenty-one. She is the pride and glory of her mother and grandmother - and the fuse that ignites the competitive fires of these three extraordinary women. ...Georgia...Chanel...Marisa...Three generations of Faith women, sharing a driving need to succeed, to beat the odds, and a strategy for survival that is intuitive, dramatic and fearless."
