A family. A firm. A lifetime of secrets. A Perfect Heritage is the irresistible new novel from the No. 1 bestselling author Penny Vincenzi, the original and the best.
The House of Farrell - home of The Cream, an iconic face product that has seen women flocking to its bijoux flagship store in the Berkeley Arcade since 1953.
At Farrell, you can rely on the personal touch. The legendary Athina Farrell remains the company's figurehead; and in her kingdom within the Berkeley Arcade, Florence Hamilton plies their cosmetics with the utmost discretion. She is sales advisor - and holder of secrets - extraordinaire.
But the world of cosmetics is changing, and the once-perfect heritage of the House of Farrell is now under threat, its customers tempted away by more fashionable brands.
Enter Bianca Bailey, formidable businesswoman, mother of three, and someone who always gets her way. Athina and Bianca lock horns over the future of the House of Farrell; but it is the past that tells its devastating tale of ambition and ego, passion and wonder... and survival.
