Review

"This debut novel is the perfect summer read – as delightfully fruity as a glass of Pimm's and with a similar kick, one that catches you unawares." DAILY MAIL

‘funny, charming and a certain bestseller.‘ IN STYLE

‘This is a book all women will identify with, and you’ll adore Louise, who’s every bit as charmingly neurotic and nutty as Bridget Jones.’ GLAMOUR

‘A brilliant read with fashion advice thrown in!’ NEW WOMAN

‘an irresistible love story and self-help manual rolled into one.’ ELLE

"It's surprising that this is Kathleen Tessaro's first novel as her style shows the confidence and ease of a more seasoned writer. Rather like Luke Rhinehart's The Dice Man, you get swept up in the idea of having an antidote to life, having decisions made for you and making changes that would normally be beyond your capabilities. A charming, entertaining novel." PUNCH

‘a fantastic book… funny, moving and most importantly its tongue is firmly planted in its cheek regarding fashion. Enjoy!’ Cat Deeley

Product Description

An enchanting novel brimming with poignancy, humour, enchantment and insight, this is a stunning debut. Imagine an Audrey Hepburn film in the present day…

It was a slim, grey volume entitled Elegance…

Louise Canova is at a crossroads in her life. Her marriage is faltering and the insecurities of adolescence have returned to haunt her. Browsing in a second-hand bookshop, she stumbles across a faded grey volume. Written by the formidable French fashion expert, Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, Elegance is an encyclopedia of style. It promises to transform plain women into creatures of poise at all times. And from Accessories to Zippers, there is nothing that Madame Dariaux can’t advise upon – including inattentive husbands, false friends, and the powerful bond between mothers and daughters.

When Louise vows to follow Madame’s advice, her life is transformed in ways she never imagined. Within the book’s pages lie clues to her own past. And as she begins to unravel them, she discovers a courage she never dreamt possible.

However, everything, even elegance, has its price.

Starting with A and finishing with Z, Elegance is a unique journey of timeless fashion, true friendship, and the rare, unexpected gift of love.
