On The Cover: The Bride Stripped Bare by Nikki Gemmell

 Here's a look at the storyline of the book 'The Bride Stripped Bare' by Nikki Gemmell.

 'A woman disappears. Her car lies abandoned on a remote bluff; no body is recovered. She was the good wife, the good mother - mannerly, quiet, self-contained.

 But she has left behind an incendiary diary chronicling a disturbing journey of sexual awakening.

 As the diary opens on her honeymoon in Morocco, she believes herself to be happy, or happy enough. Swiftly, this security masquerading as love fractures in an act of massive betrayal, only to propel her into a world of desire, fantasy and recklessness. What begins for her in the imagination ends in a tangle of sheets, in a drowning spiral of obsession and release.

 She dares to rupture convention, learning, for the first time, the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. The question is, how long can her soul sustain a perilous double life?'
