    led in turn to?

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from True Pleasures by Lucinda Holdforth:

    "The life stories of these Paris-based writers led in turn to the women of Paris whom they had admired."

    What does "led in turn to" mean?

    What is meant is that, reading the life stories of the Paris-based writers led the reader, in turn (i.e. subsequently), to be able to identify the women that the writers had admired.

    Hope this helps
