Product description

Nic Harte is the daughter of a business tycoon. Despite a life of jaw-dropping wealth and privilege, all she really wants is a bit of attention from daddy. Caryn Middleton never met her father. But growing up on a tough London sink estate, she had other things to worry about. Like getting out and moving on. Tory Spiller just yearns for some space to be herself. Living in the shadow of your dead sister is tough, particularly when she seemed to be everything you're not. Nic, Caryn and Tory: three girls who form a friendship that should last a lifetime. Until beautiful, ruthless Estelle McKenzie appears on the scene. Estelle has a secret. And, one way or another, she's going to make each woman pay a very high price for it. Once again, Lesley Lokko weaves a spellbinding tale of money, power and revenge, stretching from the 1980s to the present day. Moving effortlessly through a world of glamour, ambition and intrigue, Rich Girl, Poor Girl is an enthralling, utterly delicious novel to escape with.
