SilkPosted on: 10 July 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves
Dangerous liaisons, skeletons in closets, and a scandalous web of lies and deceit.
1920s Cheshire. A time of great glamour and decadence, high living and loose morality. A time where anything goes - and does.
Amber Vrontsky is the heiress to the wealthy Pickford dynasty, presided over by the formidable Blanche.
Obsessed with social climbing, Blanche wants nothing more for her granddaughter than a titled husband - a prize which she herself failed to secure, despite her immense wealth.
But free spirited Amber is intent on forging her own artistic career with the silk she loves so much. Unable to disobey Blanche, however, she moves to society London to become a debutante - and enters a world of illicit affairs, drug-taking, gambling, lavender marriages.
From the lavish decadence of society London to the opium dens of the Far East, the chic boutiques of Paris to the Nazi-controlled streets of Berlin, Silk spans the depravity and the glamour of this tumultuous time.
Spoil yourself with this dazzling, decadent treat by international multi-million-copy selling Penny Jordan - the ultimate read for fans of Danielle Steel and Penny Vincenzi.
Silk is the first in a series of novels inspired by the silk manufacturing industry in Macclesfield in Cheshire where she has lived for 25 years with her late husband. She still lives in Cheshire today.
Penny Jordan has been writing for over 25 years. In that time she has written over 170 books and sold over 80 million copies worldwide. She also writes under the name Annie Groves and is a mentor for new writers.
Silk, by Penny Jordan, published by Avon, is available at all good book shops, RRP £6.99, or online from Amazon for £3.49.
