Book Summary

Writing an autobiography on behalf of someone else presented Jeff with an interesting dilemma. Did he make assumptions about what Lynn would have included, or should he restrict her contribution to direct quotes from her letters and diaries? He had their kids to protect, and her parents…

As he worked through the huge amount of material available in the press about their life as it had taken shape, interlacing it with highly personal stories, the widower crafted chapter after chapter of memories, both happy and heartbreaking. If this was to be a true account of their partnership, he owed it to the memory of his beautiful best friend to cover so much more than what was already on public record.

When it came to adding his own reminiscences of those early months, about meeting someone he already knew intimately, Jeff had no difficulty in recalling every single, vivid moment. Entire conversations came back to him, sometimes word for word, rushing through his fingers and into the computer.

Photographs prompted him too, as did the treasured possessions that surrounded him, like the old leather jacket he had received on his twentieth birthday. Lynn had left him shortly after that, just like she had left him now.

The pull of being together again was unrelenting, but Jeff hung on to the dream that their life singular would one day resume. Once their story had been told.

Book 2 in the series is twinned with "Cyrano de Bergerac" by Edmond Rostand.

About the Author

Lorraine Pestell was born in London and has had a successful IT career in the UK, US, Europe, Singapore, and more recently Australia. She currently resides in Melbourne with her rescued Belgian Shepherd, Nikki.

The "A Life Singular" series is her life's work, starting out as a teenage romance, quickly morphing into a therapeutic vehicle to explore life from many angles, and ending up as a 7-part epic family saga spanning fifty years and tackling the hard questions of today's social justice topics. To get the best out of the series, they are best read in sequence.

Lorraine has two main goals for her writing: first, to inspire fellow sufferers of mental illness to rise above their symptoms and make a success of their lives; and second, to encourage non-sufferers to tolerate, support and even love those afflicted in their quest to live a "normal" life.

Sales proceeds from all books go to two Australian charities assisting young people with their education: EdConnect Australia (http://EdConnectAustralia.org.au) and The Smith Family (http://thesmithfamily.com.au)

The sixth book in the series was released in April 2017, with the final book due mid-2018. More information can be found at http://lorrainepestell.com
