Precious, the oldest of ten suffered all of her life. Her biggest fear of landing in a care home had now become true. All of her belongings were thrown in the rubbish, along with all of her memories. A stroke that was not treated, due to misconduct, had left her with slight dementia. The system was prepared to pay £900 a week for a care home she didn’t want to be in. She would have been better off in prison, at least you get parole in prison. The care home had thrown away the key. Her siblings and son had tried in vain to get her out, but her oldest daughter and granddaughters were insistent that she stay there, so they could get on with their dubious business.

Hello, My name is Glenys Maureen Kohlen, born Williams.

Born in Nottingham UK. I am one of ten children, born to Beatrice May and my father, Oswald. Each one of us has our own story to tell.

I came to Germany with WRAC in 1975 and married a German guy. I have one son, who I had at the age of 41. Actually, I am a late starter in everything I do or have done.

I have never written a manuscript, although often started but never finished.

I did write poems and won a prize when I was about eight years old at school. I found that very embarrassing when I had to go and collect my few sweets at the front of the class. The teacher said she found my poem beautiful, because it was about love, and she couldn’t understand that a person so young would think about romance at an early age.

This manuscript is very important to me because it is about my sister who is in a care home against her will. The names are all changed and although the main events are true, there are some fantasy chapters to make it less morbid.

    I am finished with the book for a week. I gave it now to my oldest daughter, so she understands that family should always stands together. Love should always be more important than money!
