Ageless Desire and Post-Divorce Sexual Liberation: Catherine Texier's "After David"

AFTER DAVID by Catherine Texier International Bestselling Author Catherine Texier
The International Bestselling Author Redefines the Single Life for Divorced Women

LOS ANGELES - PrZen -- International bestselling author Catherine Texier tempts readers with unapologetic passion and self-discovery in her latest novel, After David. In this erotic yet poignant literary work, Texier delves into the life of Eve, a writer in her early sixties who is navigating the complexities of online dating as a divorced older woman.

After David unfolds with unbridled prose, chronicling the intimate journey of Eve, a divorced mother of two grown daughters. She ignores societal expectations and familial concerns, embarking on a liberating exploration of casual encounters with younger men she meets through online dating. The author skillfully portrays the raw and unfiltered emotions of a woman who is unafraid to embrace her sexuality—and more. From Texier: "It's about a lot more than sexuality. It's about being ready to try new adventures, new projects, curiosity, openness, freedom."

The narrative takes a poignant turn when Eve meets Jonah, a thirty-something jazz guitarist. As their passionate affair unfolds, Eve finds herself on a transformative journey, shedding the weight of Catholic guilt and rediscovering the vibrant essence of her identity.
