In a thousand different ways

by Cecelia Ahern

Harper Collins

The title of Cecelia Ahern’s latest book comes from an Oscar Wilde quote: “Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways” and it rather perfectly sets the scene for the story…

Alice has a gift – although she thinks it’s a curse.  She sees people’s colours, their auras, all around them.  The first time it happened, the colour was blue and it was pouring out of her mother.  That’s when Alice first learnt about depression.  Other colours followed – gold from newborn babies, lovely pinks of lovers, fireworks of red for anger, and the occasional murderous black … this was how Alice saw the world and as a result she never really picked up social cues.  Navigating her world became more and more treacherous until she spotted a man on the underground who gave off no colours at all….

Ahern makes Alice’s plight touchingly convincing . . . [her] pain is raw on the page’ The Times

‘Stunning’ Irish Independent

‘Beautiful, moving and unexpected, In a Thousand Different ways is an unforgettable story. This is Cecelia Ahern at her very best’ Louise O’Neill

‘Utterly wonderful . . . Cecelia Ahern is a master storyteller at the absolute peak of her powers. Her heroine, Alice Kelly, is completely unique – beguiling, complicated, extraordinary – and she’ll change the way you see the world’ Clare Pooley

‘A thoughtful, engrossing novel that’s a joy to read’ Sunday Express

‘Ahern’s original talent for sensitive storytelling shines through in this novel’ Woman’s Weekly
