'Well-written, great characters , a charming tale, and packed with feel-good factor'
Six strangers with one thing in common: their lives aren't always what they make them out to be.
What would happen if they told the truth instead?
Julian Jessop is tired of hiding the deep loneliness he feels. So he begins The Authenticity Project - a small green notebook containing the truth about his life.
Leaving the notebook on a table in his friendly neighbourhood cafe, Julian never expects Monica, the owner, to track him down after finding it. Or that she'll be inspired to write down her own story.
Little do they realise that such small acts of honesty hold the power to impact all those who discover the notebook and change their lives completely.
Praise for The Authenticity Project:
'A warm and endearing tale about truth, friendship and the power of connection'
'Original, engaging and unforgettable'
'A joyous, funny read that leaves you all warm inside'
