Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A glamorous novel geared towards the older woman coming to terms with age and all it entails … wrinkles etc! With fascinating detail on the modelling life in America in the sixties and meeting the famous. It is probably semi-autobiographical so a lovely way to remember a certain time in one’s life. 70-year old Susannah looks back on hers as she works her way through four husbands making the possible fifth into her partner; five husbands might be going too far!

If you like Sandra Howard you might also like to read books by Clare Chambers, Michael Dobbs and Jane Moore.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Tell the Girl by Sandra Howard

Married four times, Susannah Forbes had a starry career as a top model. Now, with an instinctive eye for colour and design, she finds herself in constant demand as an interior designer. Offered a commission by a recently divorced American to make over his lavish Long Island home, Susannah accepts, bringing as her assistant young divorcee Daisy Mitchell. Taking off from Heathrow, Susannah is transported back to a time when, at the height of her modelling career, she lived in New York. She is walking down Madison Avenue, calling in on ad offices, being hired for exotic, back-breaking shoots. She is posing in Vogue's studios, being photographed by America's big names: Penn, Avedon, Stern. She is in California, with Sinatra and friends, mixing with Marilyn Monroe, Bob Hope, Ella Fitzgerald. She relives her Washington weekends, spending time with JFK and Jackie. Weaving together a fascinating past and a present full of emotional turmoil, Sandra Howard draws us into a world she knew so well, of glamour, style and high society, but where, below the surface, extravagence, insecurity and infidelity run rife.
