Was this what happened when you took a life? The thin end of some sinister wedge? Even when the act was one of love and compassion, the last shared ritual?? Alfie, a fifty-something artist, assists his wife's suicide, is arrested and bailed. He seeks a simple life on Dartmoor where he can grieve for his beloved Meg, and come to terms with the crime he has committed in the eyes of the law. This peace is threatened however, when he meets twenty-something Esther who's escaping a troubled past in London and working at the local pub.? Her green eyes remind him of the wife he misses, and she sees in him the father she never had. Can they make it work or is their attraction a recipe for disaster? Does Esther's ex-boyfriend offer her a better future? Will Alfie's daughter ever forgive him?
Jill Treseder's first career was in professional social work and the second in the human side of management development. This work led to a PhD, and eventually, in 2004, to the publication of 'The Wise Woman Within: Spirals to Wholeness', a self-development book for women exploring feminine wisdom. For some years Jill ran workshops based on this manual alongside her day job of social research and development projects in the area of child protection. Since 2008 she has been able to focus on her third career of writing fiction which is what she's wanted to do since she was seven years old. The common theme is exploring how people develop and change. Her first novel 'The Hatmaker's Secret' appeared at the end of 2013. She is currently working on a third about two sisters who escape to England from Budapest during the Hungarian uprising of 1956.
