Publisher Comments:

Risky, fiercely erotic and deeply touching, Davitt Sigerson’s first novel is a revealing excursion into the shadowy territory where love and lust merge and the line between devotion and compulsion disappears.

Nick is a trader on the London Stock Exchange, an honest, decent man. He has never been with anyone as desirable as Trish, so attuned to his moods and ready to embody his most intimate desires. Trish, an international marketing executive, is a completely modern woman: capable and self-confident, romantic and unabashedly sexual. Attracted by Nick’s good looks, his compassion and boyish charms, she falls for him, and within two months of their first meeting they are married. But when Trish’s past intrudes upon their happiness she makes a choice that will take their lives in extraordinary directions.

Gliding between poignant depictions of fatherhood and scenes of high voltage sex, Davitt Sigerson has crafted a luminously written story about people—like ourselves—who try to do the right thing yet still manage to make a mess of their lives. Written with intelligence, kindness and an unfiltered awareness of the ways in which today’s women experience their sexual prowess, Faithful is a stunning debut.

Synopsis:

Nick and Trish married within two months of meeting each other. A thoroughly modern couple with demanding careers-Nick is a stock trader, Trish works in international marketing-they are drawn together by a fiercely erotic bond. Trish has a voracious sexual appetite, and Nick considers himself the luckiest man in the world. As they negotiate the pitfalls of a new marriage-background differences, meddlesome friends, ghosts of former lovers-they slowly grow comfortable and find bliss in domestic preparations for the blessing of pregnancy. But, when Trishs past rears its head, shes forced to make a choice that will set their lives in completely unexpected directions.

Alternating between electric erotic encounters and affecting portraits of fatherhood, Sigerson offers deep insights into the intricacies of love, passion, and deceit in a contemporary family.
