Perfect to curl up with this Christmas, The Proposal by Tasmina Perry is a spellbinding tale of second chances that looks back to the year of the last debutantes. With a haunting love story at its heart, the novel sweeps you away to Fifties London and modern Manhattan. If you love Kate Morton, Rachel Hore and Santa Montefiore, you will adore this multi-layered, moving read. 'A story of long-buried secrets...Perry expertly weaves a delicate web of love and betrayal' Daily Express

1958. At eighteen, Georgia Hamilton is sent to London for the Debutante Season. Independent, and with secret dreams to be a writer, she has no wish to join the other debs competing for a husband. But when tragedy strikes, her fate appears to have been sealed.

2012. Hurrying to meet her lover, Amy Carrell hopes tonight will change her destiny. And it does - but not in the way she imagined. Desolate and desperate to get out of London, she accepts a position as companion to a mysterious stranger, bound for Manhattan - little knowing she is about to unlock a love story that has waited fifty years to be told. And a heart waiting to come back to life...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A heartfelt, romantic tale about lost love and how it's never too late to start again. Mingling modern day New York with the rarefied world of 1950s debutantes, Tasmina Perry's ninth novel is a departure but has all the elements she does best: characters you feel you know as intimately as close friends and lots of heart. A treat of a novel you'll want to devour in one sitting * Good Housekeeping *
An unforgettable journey...will keep you gripped * Daily Express *
A tantalising blend of elegance and mystique, a rather irresistible read * Closer *
A glamorous tale of second chances in modern Manhattan and Fifties London. An irresistible page-turner * Marie Claire *
A modern fairy tale with broken hearts. Debutantes, country houses - what's not to love? * Daily Mail (Best Books of 2013) *
An enjoyable tale, narrated with charm * Sunday Mirror *
More romantic than a candlelit proposal. On Valentine's Day. In Paris. From Ryan Gosling * Heat *
A mesmerising novel, this book will have you engrossed from cover to cover * The Lady *
