InnocenceBook - 2005
Attending a less-than-prestigious acting academy in the late 1980s, eighteen-year-old Evie Garlick finds herself enmeshed in the lives and theatrical ambitions of her fellow students, whom she remembers years later as a struggling drama teacher.
From New York Times bestselling author Kathleen Tessaro comes a poignant, funny, and utterly remarkable story of real life, real love, and fantasy—and the changes they put you through. Following a dream can lead to unexpected places....
It is 1986, and eighteen-year-old aspiring actress Evie leaves Eden, Ohio, to study theater in London, England. Almost immediately she falls in with new female chums Imogen (born-again Laura Ashley poster child, frustrated virgin) and Robbie (gorgeous wild-child bohemian, far from virginal). The world is thrilling and new, and anything is possible...until love intervenes.
It is 2001, and Evie's a single mother teaching drama to night students. Robbie is dead, killed in a car accident. And Evie is doing her level best to forget the past, the lost opportunities, and the dreams that exploded...until an old friendship comes back to haunt her. Literally.
Attending a less-than-prestigious acting academy in the late 1980s, eighteen-year-old Evie Garlick finds herself enmeshed in the lives and theatrical ambitions of her fellow students and roommates, whom she remembers years later while working as a struggling drama teacher.
