Max Sall is powerful, wealthy, and utterly ruthless. A man without a past. His wife Angela, a society debutante, fell in love with the dark, handsome chauffeur, and broke her parents´ hearts when she married him. His mistress: Francesca, the glamorous Alitalia air stewardess, saw in Max her ticket out of the Italian provinces and grabbed it and him with both hands. And his daughters: Amber, more like her father than she´ll ever know, smart, shrewd, and determined to achieve, whatever the cost; and Paola, groomed by her mother to succeed where she failed in getting a man to marry her.Max´s women are very different, but they all demand his attention. While Amber and Paola are growing up in the 1970s, their mothers somehow find a way to share Max between them. But when Amber and Paola fall in love with the same man two decades later, they´re determined that this time there will be no sharing. Moving effortlessly across five decades, Saffron Skies is a magnificent story of sisters, friends, families, and love from Lesley Lokko, one of the most outstanding new voices in commercial fiction. 1.
