Book Description

15 Jun 1998
Nina Roth and Elizabeth Savage come from different sides of the world - from utterly different sides of the social track. But under the skin they are the same: desperate to escape from a past which dragged them down, determined to make an extra mark on the world in spite of appalling personal tragedies. Drawn together by coincidence, held together by recognition, they are both determined to succeed. But they are both unlucky in love - and have enemies who will not willingly let them succeed. And the trouble with being a tall poppy is that people always know where to find you . . . 'Her novels are action-packed; her heroines gorgeous . . . I loved it' Daily Mail

From the Author

Tall Poppies is about love, hate and triumph
I guess I wanted to throw two of the most different people together... one review called this 'Dallas meets the Chalet School' and I was well chuffed. Look, a Welsh aristocrat meets a poor Jewish girl from Brooklyn... and absolutely hates her. This one`s about business, Olympic medals, falling for the wrong men and the right men and triumphing over everything... including yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but Welsh research not convincing 28 Jun 2001
By A Customer
I enjoyed this book, and by the end I couldn't put it down. The enjoyment was slightly marred for me by the inconsistencies regarding Wales and the Welsh language. Towards the end, Elizabeth travels back to Wales along the M4 - fine if you're going to South Wales - but her closest town was Bangor!! The snippets of Welsh were rather strange too - a Bangor boy with a South Wales accent - I don't think so! And she suddenly says 'iechyd da' in the middle of a sentence. I almost expected her to put on her national costume. So yes, a good read - but check out your Welsh facts next time please.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those with ambition and strength..... 18 Feb 2006
By Lucy
I am only 16 years old and have never really been introduced to an 'easy read'. I have read from authors such as Barbara Kingsolver and Jane Austin! But never really attempted such a sexy, fun, ambitious girly genre! I loved it! I could not put it down and feel in love with the audacity of both characters. My all time dream is to become a journalist, and perhaps even a novelist one day, and it is this hope of a successful and independant future that keeps me going. Now Bagshawe is my shrink, hahaha, and she deserves a lot of praise for an wonderful composition! I was shocked the comment that some sexual reference may offend adult readers. God, it is sex for crying out loud. Something everyone thinks about. I thought it was portrayed as desirable and real. Nina Roth and Elizabeth Savage are two girls every teen aspires to be. I found their hidden insecurities touching and something every girl can relate to. Well done! I plan to buy many more of Bagshawes books.
