One of our Books of the Year 2014.

June 2014 Book of the Month.

An author renowned for big books has surpassed herself and written a huge, 939 page, tome.  It is long, it is big, it is brilliant, perhaps her best yet.  It centres on a cosmetic company set up in 1953 and now, in the present, it is beginning to flounder.  The venture capitalists bring in an ace business lady, Bianca Bailey, to revitalise the company.  One of the founders, Athina, now 85, still lives and tries to disrupt the changes.  The original head of the flagship store, Florence, also still lives and of course there is the next generation.  There are many strands to this tale both in the personal and professional lives, there are secrets and much rivalry.  The planned relaunch is awesome and the whole thing one great, glorious read.

 

A 'Piece of Passion' from the Publisher...

'There is no-one quite like Penny Vincenzi; she’s one in a million. Penny’s characters are real, you can see them in their homes, their jobs, in the arms of their lovers; her children come straight from the world of today, humming with the language and technology that peppers their lives and her romance, well – what can I say? She’s Penny Vincenzi, she does love, sex, marriage and affairs like no other writer.

So dive straight into the Farrell family firm in A Perfect Heritage and learn about what makes the world’s bestselling face cream, the sweetest scent, the most luxurious of lipsticks. Discover how business takeovers happen. Tread the backstreets of the Marais in Paris and hear how the French do glamour. See how women can run fashion, families and finances. And treasure the essence of what makes A Perfect Heritage – it’s the ultimate Vintage Vincenzi.' - Imogen Taylor, Publishing Director, Headline
