Set against the stunning backdrop of rolling hills, historic castles, golden beaches and quaint fishing villages in the northeast of the UK. Port St James is a typical sleepy Northumbrian fishing village consisting of fishermen’s cottages clustered ’round a small, safe but tidal harbour. The story is set in the present-day village which has a Neolithic fortification, a medieval castle and a fifteenth-century smugglers inn. A derelict farm on the hill above the harbour is the centre of a story involving the two main characters.

Can the divorced penniless victim of an abusive childhood, teenage rape, forced and abusive marriage to a violent husband ever trust a man again and if so enough to find affection? Equally, can a recently divorced ex-serviceman whose wife was repeatedly unfaithful ever trust a woman again with his heart? Is this going to end tragically like Romeo and Juliet or will love triumph over the odds?

The author is married and lives in the UK, in the Yorkshire Dales. An avid reader of all genres since an early age and particularly of romance in recent years. Pursuing a career as an engineer, preparing legal reports stifled the creative need. Now able to express their imagination, the author’s main wish for the reader is that they enjoy reading the novel as much as the author did writing and exploring the characters.

    A very easy read, no complicated plot to unravel. The characters come to life as the story progresses. The story is perfectly realistic. I enjoyed reading it.
