    Sommaire:

    She's blossomed from a wealthy surgeon's beautiful daughter to elegant socialite to being the top fashion stylist in the country. And Nora Mackenzie is only days away from marrying into one of New York's richest, most powerful families. But her fairy tale rise is rooted in an incredible deception-one scandal away from turning her perfect world to ashes... What no one knows is that Nora is the biracial daughter of a Caribbean woman and a long-gone white father. Adopted-and abused-by her mother's employer, then sent to an exclusive boarding school to buy her silence, Nora found that "passing" as a white woman could give her everything she never had. Now, an ex-classmate who Nora betrayed many years ago has returned to her life to even the score. Her machinations are turning Nora's privilege into one gilded trap after another. Running out of choices, Nora must decide how far she will go to protect a lie or give up and finally face the truth. Praise for Have You Met Nora': "Nora is tender, courageous, and beautifully flawed." -Rosalind Noonan, New York Times bestselling author. "A winding story full of secrets, betrayal, revenge, and love." -Rena Olsen, author of The Girl Before. "Blades has created a heroine both honorable and deceptive, both vulnerable and powerful, a heroine whose choices are at times shocking but arguably necessary." -Holly Chamberlin, author of The Season of Us. "This is a deft and searing commentary on identity and race." -Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
