Tell The Girl

tell the girl howard s andra

When Warren Lindsay, self-made billionaire beer magnate and Long Island staple, now in his seventies and bitter from divorce, calls Susannah and invites her to come and renovate his east coast house, Susannah accepts sensing the possibility for a summer flirtation or more. What I find out about her in the the amount a read did not have me intrigued. I'm quite shocked by the average rating, I actually really liked the book - though admittedly the beginning was a bit of a slog and I found it uncomfortable to switch back and forth between first and third person. Sandra is actively involved with two national charities as a trustee of Addaction, a charity helping people to fight drug and alcohol addiction, and as Vice President of Youth Epilepsy. Married four times, Susannah Forbes had a starry career as a top model.

I think the environment of the book was based on the backdrop and glamour of the 60s with World history going on in the background. She has three adult children: Sholto, Nick and Larissa, and is married to the former British Conservative Party Leader Michael Howard. She continues to write regularly for the press. The book was written in the first person with A total bore! Then there's the plot, or lack of, again I'm not I hate not finishing a book. 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 worked as a freelance journalist alongside modelling, before turning to novel writing. However I really enjoyed the storyline and Susannah's history is just so rich, it was exciting to delve into her history. This novel reads more as a portrait of a character and a vignette of a lifestyle and time than a pacy, action-packed romp. The character is weak, vacuous, I don't want to know more about her which is a bad sign. 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.

Daisy is caught in an unwholesome affair with married Simon. The background is one of high living, high fashion, fine dining, and a lot of alcohol. It seems to be the only real story was that this clearly beautiful model was being pursued by everything in trousers and took up with many of them in revenge for her husbands infidelity resulting in seperation and divorce which she then went on to repeat with two further husbands before finally settling down and not passing on her life lessons to the younger Daisy really dont think I got this one!!!

. She has three adult children: Sholto, Nick and Larissa, and is married to the former British Conservative Party Leader Michael Howard. She continues to write regularly for the press. This was such a disappointment. Sandra also supports First Story, a charity that provides funds to enable well-known writers to hold creative writing classes in inner city schools. Neither the characters or the plot interest me enough to endure reading the rest.
