The Inscrutable LIfe of Frannie Phillips

Almost-but-not-quite-true stories Book 3

After 12-year-old Frannie Phillips survives the sinking of the Titanic, surely, she could be forgiven if she expects her parents to indulge her one dream―to become a dressmaker and designer. But this is too common for their British upper-class taste.

Driven by her desire to rebel against everything they represent and a chance encounter on the train from Oxford to London with American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, Frannie makes a single mistake that alters her life forever. She flees to Paris where she is plunged into the clashing worlds of haute couture and literature.

When she is faced with the ultimate choice between two very different life paths, she chooses the one that forces her into a life of secrecy even as she moves between her Paris home, London, New York, and ultimately Canada where her great-granddaughter finds her diaries. Frannie Phillips always knew she would never find her life by searching for it―so she created it.
