Under your wings

Tsao, Tiffany2018
Gwendolyn and Estella have always been as close as sisters can be. Growing up in a wealthy, powerful and sometimes treacherous family, they've relied on each other for support and confidence. Now, though, Gwendolyn is lying in a coma, the sole survivor of Estella's poisoning of their whole family. What in their dark and complicated past has brought them to this point? As Gwendolyn struggles to regain consciousness, she desperately retraces her memories, trying to uncover the moment that led to this brutal act. Their aunt's supposed death at sea; Estella's unhappy marriage to the brutish Leonard; the shifting loyalties and unspoken resentments at the heart of the opulent world they inhabit, one by one, the facts float up, forcing Gwendolyn to confront the truth about who she and her sister really are, and the secrets in their family's past. Travelling from the luxurious world of the rich and powerful in Jakarta to the most spectacular shows at Paris Fashion Week, from the coasts of California to the melting pot of Melbourne's university scene, this is a powerful, evocative and deeply compelling novel about the secrets that can build a family empire and then ultimately bring it crashing down.
