About the Author
Consuelo Saah Baehr was born in El Salvador to French and Palestinian parents. At age five, she moved to Washington, DC, where her father and uncles ran Jean Matou, the prestigious boutique that was a favorite of First Ladies Bess Truman and Jackie Kennedy. She was inspired to write Three Daughters from hearing the history of her paternal grandparents who survived the rule of the Ottomans, the British Mandate, and ultimately found their future in America.
Consuelo is the author of several novels, nonfiction works, and a lively blog. She lives in East Hampton, NY, in a small cottage near the sea.
