A story of obsessional love.

David returns from his grandfather’s funeral in Yorkshire to his home in London to find a letter that proves to be the beginning of a significant relationship with Hedley, a colleague with whom David has had little previous contact.

After a few years, the relationship ends abruptly leaving David emotionally adrift. Unable to accept the fact that the relationship is over, David waits for Hedley’s return.

Despite advice from friends and an extended period of counselling, David’s single-minded resolve to stoically set his sights on Hedley’s eventual return leads to a shocking development and another funeral.

Ben Lister spent the majority of his life as a teacher. Now happily retired, he spends his time composing and arranging choral music, working as a volunteer dog walker and writing all manner of things.

He lives in Surrey with his husband and together they travel, wine and dine, and cultivate their garden.

    The reader gets an in-depth understanding of how David, a young male teacher, feels about his own family and the extent to which he wants to recreate a family unit with the one he loves. Engaging the reader in the emotional journey that David encounters, the author creates authentic, atmospheric scenes drawing in nostalgia, excitement, bewilderment, loss, and enduring desire, love, and adoration. The author opens the story with an effectively crafted time hop from beginning to end to narrate the events between one funeral and the next. The book provides an unpredictable storyline with elements of familiarity and fantasy woven into a tasteful tapestry of love and attraction.
