Love Always


Cornwall 1963

If you close your eyes perhaps you can still see them. As they were that sundrenched afternoon, the day everything changed.

They’re so different now and there’s no intimacy between them at all.

    Oh, I do love that beginning. It hints at ominous and life-changing events that will surely keep the reader turning those pages. P. 56 has a sadness about it.

    Thanks for sharing….

    A very ominous beginning! Starting out all nice and sun-drenched…and then everything changing.

    Oh I wonder what changed? I think this kind of opening is getting more and more common with authors but it still drags me in! Must be my nosey nature 😉
