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.

Comment List (Total:13)

  •     Another fun, quick read. Most definitely a "chic" book. The main character made me laugh out loud. Good story line.
  •     I was intrigued with this book. Because of it I read tessaro's other books.
  •     I enjoy a good story and Ms. Tessaro is indeed capable of supplying them. The book was a fast read and i was sorry to have it end. I have read several of her books and look forward to more.
  •     Started with The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro. I am now working my way through all of her other books!
  •     This book just didn't live up to my expectations. "Elegance", Kathleen Tessaro's first novel, was a book I picked up on a trip to London for the plane ride home and I absolutely...
  •     Quite disappointed in this novel, as I really enjoyed author's first novel "Elegance." While the supporting characters in Innocence are likable, they are just caricatures.
  •     I can't believe this book got 4 stars. It has gross drug and sex scenes. A main character is not innocent she is just stupid.
  •     I love Kathleen Tessaro and I have bought every single one of her books. This was my least favorite. To be honest I am not sure if this was her first book as a writer, but I hope so. It felt slightly "new" if you know what I mean. As if she had an idea and started writing and no one ever told her that it needed work. Love her, love her writing normally. Don't love this book.
  •     This novel covers two time periods in the life of Evie: in 1987 when she is heading from the U.S. to live in England and go to a drama academy, and her life 14 years later.
  •     What I wanted
  •     Innocence was a wonderful book! It's not hard to get lost in the story and relate to the character, Evie. You go with her as she struggles with her past and present. She learns to let go of what she's afraid may have been mistakes, with the help of a lost friend that does what every friend should do, challenge you and be that mirror you never want to look in. It's an easy read that you can really feel for.
  •     I had read Ms Tessaro's book "The Perfume Collector" and found it so engrossing that I bought several other books of hers. The one just mentioned is the best so far and I gave it a 5.I began reading this book and just could not get in to it so I will give to charity. I did not find the characters likable or interesting.
  •     The cover was torn in some places. However, the book is intact.
