The Widow's Tale

Front Cover
Windsor/Paragon, 2010 - Bereavement - 205 pages
A newly-widowed woman has abandoned her London house and driven to the Norfolk coast to escape the ceaseless sympathy and insincere concern.

All she knows is that she can't sleep and may be drinking a little more than she ought to. As her story unfolds we discover that her marriage was far from perfect - and had one or two significant secrets.
