In the search of financial success in order to insure her independence, she becomes a strong woman prevailing in the intense competitive culture of fast developing Los Angeles in the 7O's and 8O's. But she falls in love with Russ, a man who values his freedom as much as she does hers. Although the lovers feel happy together, Russ leaves for France, a country he has learned to love. Will Yvette follow him? Or stay and nurture the rapidly growing business which is the key to her long- desired freedom? Her battles and triumphs take us through interesting moments of Los Angeles' history, introduce us to fascinating characters: international developers, motion picture moguls, the Beatniks and their counterculture way of life.
