About the Book

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 (a native New Yorker, budding bohemian and very much not a virgin)— Evie is 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, Evie is stuck. She’s now a single mother teaching drama classes, her dreams long since abandoned. Robbie is dead, killed in car accident, and Imo has lost touch. Then a friendship from the past comes to haunt Evie. Literally. And suddenly everything is about to change again.

A wonderful follow-up to the bestselling Elegance, Innocence is the perfect summer novel about true love, true friends and the art of being true to yourself.
