Book Summary

Lynn Dyson and Jeff Diamond had become the celebrity couple with the Midas touch. With their son showing every sign of fulfilling his sporting destiny and a teenaged daughter who was already driven to right the world’s wrongs, they were showered with accolades and adoration from every corner of the globe.

How had this nobody from the wrong side of the tracks got so lucky? With his dream girl by his side every step of the way, the superstar’s multi-faceted career knew no bounds. Politicians clamoured for photo-opportunities, the press hung on his every word and the success of their business empire funnelled millions of dollars into worthy causes.

No wonder they had been an assassination target! Jeff’s autobiography foretold this omen with twenty-twenty hindsight, his open wounds smarting with each obvious opulent and outspoken occasion. “The higher you climb, the harder you fall.” This tedious cliché rang true for the father as he captured his teenagers’ many exploits for posterity. He and Lynn had dared to scale enormous heights, paying the ultimate price far too soon.

Had it all been worth it? The book held these secrets, painstakingly transcribed by a man who couldn’t wait to find out what was to come. Whether taken from his lover’s journals, the children’s memories or the cataclysm of poetry pouring from his lonely heart, the months leading up to his next challenge had legitimised every decision the forever couple had ever made.

He only hoped the same good fortune would hold true in the next lifetime.

Book 6 in the series is twinned with "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez.

About the Author

Lorraine Pestell was born in London and has enjoyed a successful IT career in the UK, US, Europe, Singapore, and more recently Australia. She currently resides in country Victoria 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, the books 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
