When Adrian’s long-term partner, Peter, dies of cancer, he becomes profoundly depressed, starts drinking heavily and loses his job as a music teacher. However, he then meets a psychotherapist who suggests possible ways forward and he embraces her suggestions wholeheartedly, trying to turn his life around. He finds out first about his unknown father – a shocking story in itself, which brings him closer to his family, both living and dead – and starts to write a book about music. After this, he meets a young professional, John, and subsequently, they move into a house Adrian inherits from an elderly aunt. But when something horrific happens to John, the old depression returns and he needs the help of three strong women to come to terms with it.

This, then, is a story about dealing with grief but, as such, it’s also ultimately a story of hope, even after the darkest of events.

R. J. Sloane has been writing poems and stories all his life. After twenty years roaming the world, teaching English, he returned to England, where he has been based ever since. For the past eight years, since he was forced to retire from teaching due to medical reasons, he has been concentrating on stories for children and young people, although recently, he has been focusing more on novels for adults.

    Been really busy lately but happy to say I finished “A Life in Notes” this morning! Extremely enjoyed it! Made me blub a couple of times which is my hallmark of a good book! Well done Richard Sloane.

    Your book, A Life in Notes, finally arrived and I read it in 3 sittings. The short chapters drew me in and kept up my desire to see what happens next. When I finished it was difficult to believe I'd not just read an autobiography. Thanks for a most enjoyable read!
