'A joyous, funny read that leaves you all warm inside' Beth Morrey, author of Saving Missy

'Feel-good...full of hope. A quirky cast of characters you can't help but root for'
Woman & Home, Book of the Month


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 café, 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 realize that such small acts of honesty hold the power to impact all those who discover the notebook and change their lives completely.

Readers are falling in love with The Authenticity Project:

***** 'A charming, funny and uplifting story.'
***** 'Full of optimism . . . I defy anyone not to pick it up and be both transported and delighted.'
***** 'An absolute gem of a book . . . brings both honesty and the perfect level of escapism to give you a warm fuzzy glow inside.'

Lovely Book

Simple idea but unique - very well written

A must read!

I loved this book! Such a lovely, heartwarming story. It kept me turning the pages, not wanting to put it down. Each character was carefully crafted and bounced off the others and the plot led seamlessly to the end ... and what an ending! So often I get to the end of a book being disappointed with the way in which the author draws/doesn’t draw things to a close. This storyline was well crafted with an original beginning, middle that just took you with it and a perfect ending. Thank you!

Insightful and interesting cover to cover

A wonderful insight into the way that humans respond to one another given the chance. It made me want to be a finder of the book at the center of the story. Besides that, there are many twists and turns to what is an intriguing story which, at different points, looks quite like a mirror if we are prepared to look into it.
