Faithful : a novel
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, romantic and sexually confident. 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. Between poignant depictions of fatherhood and graphic scenes of full-on sex, Davitt Sigerson has crafted a luminous story about people - like ourselves - who try to do the right thng yet still manage to make a mess of their lives. Written with intelligence, empathy and an awareness of the ways in which today's women experience their sexual prowess, Faithful is a stunning debut.
