Description: One hundred years ago, Therese Humbert was one of the most powerful women in France. Her salon was the center of Parisian life and her wealth, as the daughter of an American billionaire, was fabled. She lived a fantastic lifestyle, was the talk of Paris, and was connected through marriage to Henri Matisse. But in truth, she was one of the greatest imposters France had ever seen -- this doyenne of high society was actually an incredibly resourceful and inventive commoner whose grand lifestyle was based solely on illusion and fantasy wealth. When she was exposed in 1902, the scandal nearly destroyed the French Third Republic. Thousands of creditors, including Matisse's in-laws, were ruined. An unforgettable real-life story, La Grande Therese describes the rise and fall of a poor French peasant girl with extraordinary willpower and irresistible powers of persuasion.
