Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A woman disappears, leaving behind an incendiary diary chronicling a journey of sexual awakening. To all who knew her, she was the good wife: happy, devoted, content. But the diary reveals a secret self, one who's discovered that her new marriage contains mysteries of its own. She has discovered a forgotten Elizabethan manuscript that dares to speak of what women truly desire, and inspired by its revelations, she tastes for the first time the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. The question is: How long can she sustain a perilous double life?

This book changed my life, and I'm not just saying that to be kind. The first time I read it, it was in my head for weeks. I could not stop thinking about it and the themes and issues it raises.
I admire Nikki Gemmell so much for her candour and explicitness. This book never shies away from the hard-hitting issues faced by many young women.
In short, this book is fantastic.
