9780007151455: Innocence

Sunday Times bestselling author, Kathleen Tessaro returns with a stunning new novel that will be a big hit with fans of her debut success Elegance

It's 1987 and Evie is leaving home for the first time, headed for London to study acting. Along with her fellow students and roommates, Imogene (a born again Laura Ashley poster child and frustrated virgin) and Robbie (native New Yorker, budding bohemian, and very much not a virgin), Evie's determined to make her mark both on stage and off.

But then life and love, in the shape of struggling rock musician Jake Albery, intervene. And everything changes.

Fourteen years later and Evie's stuck. She's now a single mother teaching drama classes, her dreams long since abandoned. Robbie's dead, killed in car accident and Imo's lost touch.

Then a friendship from the past comes to haunt Evie. Literally. And suddenly everything is about to change again.

Review:

PRAISE FOR INNOCENCE:

A warm, deft portrait of the power of friendship.’ Guardian

‘An evocative coming-of-age story.’ Independent

‘Amusing and poignant.’ Daily Telegraph

‘…. is written with the same cool precision as her bestseller Elegance.’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘An absorbing novel of love, innocence and experience.’ WOMAN AND HOME

‘A warm tale of love, friendship and following your dreams.’ COSMOPOLITAN

‘This is a coming-of-age novel for women who have wasted their 20s on cheap men and rough wine.’ Guardian

‘A wonderful tale of lust, love, life and redemption.’ Waterstones Books Quarterly

PRAISE FOR KATHLEEN TESSARO:

‘Ultra-smart and classily edgy, this is the glitz novel brought up to date.’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘More heart than you'll ever find on a catwalk…Written with élan and panache.' DAILY MAIL

‘This is a book all women will identify with, and you’ll adore Louise, who’s every bit as charmingly neurotic and nutty as Bridget Jones.’ GLAMOUR

‘A true handbag read, an easy diversion from real life.’ GUARDIAN

About the Author:

Born in Pittsburgh, Kathleen Tessaro studied drama before emigrating to London. After ten years working as an actress in films, television, and theatre, she left the profession and spent several years working for the English National Opera, while training in the evenings as a drama teacher and voice coach.

During this time, she began to write. Working on short stories during her lunch hour, she soon became a regular member of a writers workshop.

She lives in North London with her husband and son.
