Meet Pearl Wilde, one of the unpredictable daughters in the unforgettable family of Wildes. When Pearl discovers her sister, Kat, dressed up in her favourite pair of shoes - and in a compromising position with Pearl's fiance - she catches the very first express train out of town. Five years later, Pearl returns home to Five Points. This time, her claws are razor sharp and her new demeanour is so cool, the citizens of her home village begin to doubt she even has sweat glands. "The Wilde Women" is a funny, sexy, and bitingly smart story of how love can turn to hate like wine can turn to vinegar - and how one wise, wild woman can turn that bitterness into a sweet, delicious tart.
