Share via Email Penny Vincenzi in June She worked as a journalist until signing her first book deal in But ever sensible, she invested instead in an Apple Macintosh computer. It was a sound investment: each of the following five novels she wrote on the machine turned into bestsellers. Her stories teemed with people — the lists of characters in each book sometimes passed 50 — to create immersive novels that won her a legion of loyal readers and pushed her sales over 7m copies worldwide.

One thing I felt made this book a little stronger was that all the stories were so interconnected.
Product Details Promotional Information Power, politics and closely guarded secrets. She is the author of two humorous books and eleven previous novels. Penny Vincenzi is married with four daughters. Celia has announced her retirement from the publishing house while adopted daughter Barty Miller, who runs the New York branch of the company, marries a man who may threaten the family business. Vincenzi does not lose the reader by focusing on too many characters, which can sometimes happen in a family saga. She concentrates instead on only a few of the grandchildren: Lucas, Noni, Jenna, and Izzy.
