About the Book

It is the summer of 1961, and Irene is spending summer in Mt. Vernon, New York with her grandmother. Irene is restless and dreams of earning money to buy new clothes; culottes. Papagallo shoes, and pill box hats like Mrs. Kennedy’s are all the rage. She just knows she will be successful selling make up door to door. Little does she know, there is more behind the closed doors in Grandma’s neighborhood than the serene housewives depicted on the pages of her Rose Petal Princess sales manual. Behind every door is a story, and Irene is about to learn more about life than she bargained for, but it’s an experience she wouldn’t sell for anything.

In this, her second book, author Lorraine Gilman weaves a story of unexpected hope, friendship and redemption in the quiet neighborhood of her youth. Filled with iconic and engaging characters, A Flawless Foundation captures the reader from start and doesn’t let go until the immensely satisfying last bite.

About the Author

Lorraine Gilman lives in Atlanta with her husband of more than thirty years, Murray, and their two hyperactive Jack Russell terriers, Pippa and Tebow. She is also the proud mother of three grown children—Adam, Michael, and Margot. After years of being a frustrated artist, she put down her paintbrush and began to type. A Flawless Foundation is her second book.
