There is a great divide between Classical music and Pop/Rock with many musical genre filling the in between space. Before the Beatles came on the scene back in the 60's, Country Music filled the great divide. It has a way of telling a story in a short yet meaningful way. One of my favourite songs was the Hank Locklin hit, Please Help Me I'm Falling. It made me curious to find a situation in which someone would need to beg for help because they were 'Losing the will to be true.' I have always wanted to bring that story to life. Daphne DuMaurier did it in Frenchman's Creek and recently a similar story was retold in Bridges of Madison County. This story is my twist on that theme. For me it was important to have my own ending to a torturous love story.
What I learned from this book is a lesson in patience, something I have not been blessed to have received as a natural gift. WRiting stories is easy but making them palatable for general consumption is another matter. The steps to getting published can seem insurmountable but still, the energy needed to put out a readable story is worth the effort. If you like my story, thank you for reading it. I love women's strength and any opportunity to showcase our ability to rise above the worst challenges shows the power of the human spirit. I also believe in the power of love and what we can understand about and use to better ourselves. We must be humble before we can give our heart to another. Like all enormous events in our life if we don't change with these things which challenge us and become stronger then our life lessons will never be learned.
