Hi everyone, I've stepped into the abyss......I'm a full time writer now! It's a tough life, but hey, I've got a sense of humour. I've come through only slightly demented from what the past 50 odd years has thrown at me, but on the positive side L.I.F.E has given me lots of fuel regarding stories to write about. However, it's not all bad; I'm now sailing in peaceful waters as still as a millpond and reaping the rewards from my life choices. About bloody time too........

I can’t even begin to imagine what it must have been like for Alex, when Adam, the husband she loved with all her heart and was looking forward to starting a family with, informed her that he was really a woman in a man’s body. She had only become aware of his transgender issues when they had been married for a couple of years and after Adam had asked her to visit his therapist, who broke the news which sent Alex reeling with shock.
After a bitter divorce Alex has to try and come to terms with life on her own. Her mother and good friend Paul offer support, but she cannot trust any other man enough to be able to form another relationship. She moves far away and throws herself into her work as a reporter and tries to rebuild her life.
I can sympathise totally with the pain on learning that the man you are in love with is really somebody else. It happened to me in a different way, but it’s the same lies and mistrust that eventually wreck any marriage. I wonder if anyone ever really does get over the disappointment and heartache in having all their plans for the future dashed?
The story is told very well. My only criticism would be that it took until 38% on my Kindle before the actual subject itself was written about. Not being interested in anything to do with the equine world, I found the first third of the book a bit hard going, but was glad that I persevered to enjoy quite an interesting but sad tale.
