ALLEGRA HUSTON. Say My Name
On meeting Micajah Burnett, the son of an old school friend, Eve Armanton is faced with a choice. Years of a miserable marriage means she’s as broken as the beautiful antique violin she’s just found, and Micajah offers a spark of life, an opportunity to reawaken her sense.
“This is the time to run away, she thinks, to call it a mistake, to race back to home and safety. If I don’t go home I will never feel safe again.” If Eve takes a leap into this new world, she’ll be leaving behind her old self for good. Her happiness depends on forging a new life, but at the end of her journey who will Eve have become?
This is not just a novel about a middle-aged woman who has an extramarital affair with a much younger man but a dazzling debut about a highly-charged and very sensual affair. Skilfully crafted, original and beautifully written.
