Tessa Garcia dreams of working for the famous Paris-based perfume maker, François Coty.
But Tessa, and her two equally determined sisters, live in 1900s London, in a strict Spanish-Irish Catholic household, and girls do not have jobs let alone careers.
Tessa wants to play her part in the family’s sherry importation business and is resolute she will work. Her father is adamant she will not.
Meeting Coty is a coming-of age story about a young woman’s battle for independence.
