One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | August 2017 Debut of the Month

As it dances across thoughts and emotions, ‘Say My Name’ proves to be a beautiful, thoughtful, and seductive read. Eve is 48, her life is stagnant until she finds a broken violin and meets Micajah, a young man capable of awakening her innermost being. Allegra Huston writes with a gentle sensuality, I almost felt as though I had stepped into a dream, yet moments of biting reality create an exquisite balance. The intimacy of the sexual relationship between Eve and Micajah allowed me to enter Eve’s thoughts and step outside of myself, as she followed the path she herself had created. ‘Say My Name’ has an otherworldly feel, that stimulates senses and provokes feelings, and I found this voyage of discovery to be a very lovely read indeed. ~ Liz Robinson

Say My Name Synopsis

'Say My Name is a dazzling debut about a highly-charged and very sensual affair. Skilfully crafted, original and beautifully written, I loved it!' - Santa Montefiore 'This is the time to run away, she thinks, to call it a mistake, to race back to home and safety. If I don't go home I will never feel safe again.' On meeting Micajah Burnett, the son of an old school friend, Eve Armanton is faced with a choice. Years of a miserable marriage means she's as broken as the beautiful antique violin she's just found, and Micajah offers a spark of life, an opportunity to reawaken her sense. If Eve takes a leap into this new world, she'll be leaving behind her old self for good. Her happiness depends on forging a new life, but at the end of her journey who will Eve have become?
