TORN
She can escape her past but can she ever escape herself ?

Life is not a fairy tale; it can be confusing and difficult. Sex is not always awesome; it can be awkward and embarrassing, and it has consequences. You don't always fall for Mr Right, even if he falls for you. And realising you're in love is not always good news. It can make the future look daunting.
Jess has made a series of bad choices. Job, relationships and life-style have all let her down. By escaping the turmoil of her London life, she is putting her young child first. This time she wants to get it right, to devote herself to being a mother. But the country does not offer the i ‘good life ’idyll she pictured. The landscape she looks out on is under threat, new friends have hidden agendas, two very different men pull her in opposing directions.

In the face of temptation old habits die hard. She is torn between the suitable man and the unsuitable boy.

    Earlier this year, I had the immense pleasure of discovering the writing of Gilli Allan when I read and reviewed Life Class. I did go on a bit - about the fact that the author had written "the kind of...

    I’m often teased for my dogged determination to finish every book I start, regardless of its quality. Had I been the sort of person to discard a book at the early stages because it wasn’t grabbing...

    TORN pulled me into the story of Jess from the very first paragraph. The book is a wonderful piece of prose from a gifted author with a unique voice. It is a romance with a twist, a slice from the lif...

    Jess and her young son, Rory, escape from their old life in search of something better. Jess's choice could not be more extreme. She leaves the bustle of London for the quiet of the countryside, her d...

    Gilli has written this book so beautifully, it is by no means Chick Lit, but instead a grown up romance novel that is heartfelt and sometime very passionate (but not inappropriately so!) set in the go...

    When I first started reading this book the central character had been tracked down by her ex-partner and was being publicly abused in the street. When she was rescued by a scruffy young man and his fr...

    This story is about a seemingly together, contemporary woman with a lot of doubt on the inside. Isn't that "oh so human." When Jess moves to the country to start new she's pursued by two men. (Insert ...

    Much of the prose in this book was evocative and fluent, descriptive and detailed. There were many contemporary issues raised and explored, and there were some difficult themes bravely confronted by ...
