Life can throw a variety of curved balls your way, especially when you reach 50-something. Rather than say what you want in this world,
you take the other track and say what you don't want.
Due, in the main, to previous experiences, the good, the bad and the in-between. Strange how life goes sometimes. We think that we are off down a particular track, then another door opens.
Having never been to the USA. But, to suddenly have everything that is about USA in your lap. Well, another door! To go through the machinations, the experience, of qualifying for a US Green Card is one thing, but to take it to the next stop, US Citizenship, can only be described as one monumental emotional roller-coaster.
Life as it was before, during and after these privileged happenings. Strangely enough, surprise, surprise, this all revolves around an amazing, romantic, love story, based on a real life series of powerful events, for two, middle-aged, been-there, done-that people.
However, the two involved in this ride were being watched over by an Angel, up on high. Their story, the incredible happenings, are chronicled through the eyes of an Angel in Heaven, Simone Nicole. Simone shares how her South Pacific father met, courted and married an unattainable, beautiful, California flight attendant. Share in the courtship between the Sky Princess and Simone's Daddy. Witness how he subsequently arrived in the USA.
1000's of miles of trans-Pacific flight. Hours of international phone calls. Trails of emails. Life Stateside. Accommodation. Employment. Bureaucracy.
The impact of 9/11/2001. A Tranquil haven. Coincidence after coincidence? Surely, a power greater than that at work.
From the outset, a goose-bump, heart-jerking, roller-coaster, of chills and euphoria, hitting extraordinary heights and debilitating lows.
Two very determined individuals bonding and tenaciously striving to reach their destination. Together. Heart-warming. Sad.Painful. Refreshing.

An interesting love story, tender, and filled with personal accounts of a man who had given up on finding a mate. I would recommend the book to both men and women in their fifties, who have closed one marriage and may be open to a second less glandular and more reasoned.
From KB, September 2015. Really enjoyed it.
Beautiful, brave, so sad in places and yet always so full of love and hope.
NEW ebook JUST RELEASED
In WWII, a New Zealand Serviceman is captured by the Germans and spends 15 months as a POW. Friends of his NZ family have relatives in North Wales. They write to the Welsh family and ask them if someone could try to contact the New Zealander, through the Red Cross.
A certain young Welsh lady wrote to him and he replied to her.
As the war drew to a close, the New Zealander was part of a 600 mile "death march" across Europe, from late January 1945 until April.
He was repatriated to a London hospital to convalesce. On being discharged from hospital, he arranged to meet her at St. Helier train station. His first words to her were, "Miss Williams?".
They married on August 28th, 1945 and three weeks later he left for NZ on a troop ship. This book is based on her prolific love letters she wrote from Wales, in September 1945, until she reached Melbourne by ship in February 1946.
