The long-awaited follow-up to the international bestselling phenomenon THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE, WITH MY BODY is an intensely personal tale of sexual awakening as well as one wife′s story about every woman′s marriage.
Locked into an unending cycle of school runs, laundry and meal times, a wife despairs of ever finding a way through her family to her own identity. Even her husband, whom she loves, has never reached the core of her. In desperation, she flees her comfortable life to revisit an old love affair -- an extremely passionate, transforming one. The consequences will be devastating, liberating and entirely unexpected ...
Told in Nikki Gemmell′s distinctively lyrical style, this is beautiful, literary writing at its best. Exquisitely raw, emotional and bold, it is deeply resonant of the classic French erotic writings of Colette, Anaïs Nin and Marguerite Duras, but with a modern and provocative twist.
