Summary
As preparations for the 1893 World's Fair set Chicago and the nation on fire, Louis Tiffany--heir to the exclusive Fifth Avenue jewelry empire--seizes the opportunity to unveil his state-of-the-art, stained glass, mosaic chapel, the likes of which the world has never seen. But when Louis's dream is threatened by a glassworker's strike months before the Fair opens, he turns to an unforseen source for help: the female students at the Art Students League of New York. Eager for adventure, the young women pick up their skirts, move to boardinghouses, take up steel cutters, and assume new identities as the "Tiffany Girls."
Summary
The impetuous Flossie Jayne -- a beautiful, budding artist who is handpicked by Louis Tiffany to help complete the Tiffany chapel -- takes on a colorful cast of characters to transform her Chicago boarding house into a home while making a name for herself in the art world
