Under My Skin

Under My Skin

Alison Jameson

Fiction / Contemporary

Hope and Larry marry on a whim. They are twenty-two, crazy for each other and penniless. What Larry doesn't know is that behind her bohemian spirit and adorably off-beat humour, Hope is hiding a secret from her past. What Hope doesn't know is that her secret is going to tear her and Larry apart. The only person Hope reveals her secret to is Matilda, an internet pal she's never met. Matilda says the right things and Hope trusts her. But Matilda too has a dark secret - an obsession with a man who doesn't want her. After Larry leaves her Hope is heartbroken, but she tries to make a life without him. However, when she hears he has disappeared in New York, she drops everything and goes to find him. That's when she finally meets Matilda. What started as an innocent internet friendship results in the collision of four lives - with dramatic consequences, and the hope that true love will win in the end. **Review 'A bittersweet, beautifully written novel' IMAGE MAGAZINE on This Man and Me 'Such warmth and sharpness that you avidly turn each page' SUNDAY INDEPENDENT on This Man and Me 'Towers above most contemporary women's fiction ... an author with monumental talent' IRISH EXAMINER on This Man and Me About the Author Before deciding to devote herself to writing in 2005, Alison Jameson was a director of leading Irish advertising agency Irish International BBDO.
