ITEM: One copy of ‘After The Fall’ by Kylie Ladd signed by the author.
DETAILS: Kate: ‘I had been married three years when I fell in love. Fell, collapsed, stepped off the curb and found nothing but air. Oh, I already loved my husband of course, but this was different. That had been a decision; this was out of my control, an impulse as difficult to resist as gravity.’
Cary: ‘It happened, it’s over, I’ll survive. What’s the point in talking about it?’
Cressida: ‘For ages after I found out I tormented myself wondering when it had started. Not the sex, which was too much even to contemplate. Not even the kissing, but the thought, the desire, the possibility.’
Luke: ‘For seven months I was the happiest man in the world. Who wouldn’t have been? Two beautiful women whose faces lit up when they saw me, one always available if the other was elsewhere.’
Two married couples: Kate and Cary, Cressida and Luke. Four people who meet, click, and become firm friends. But then Kate and Luke fall in love and into an affair. It blows their worlds apart. After the fall, nothing will ever be the same.
