A moving heart-tugging story of true love, devotion and pain...
Pneuma Springs Publishing
Set in Ventnor, a quaint seaside town on the Isle Of Wight off the south coast of England, this bitter-sweat love story describes the lifetime of Chris and Penny from their childhood.
As the story unfolds from the early fifties, picturesque scenes from around the island are intertwined in their story of undying love and devotion, and recall features of those days now long gone.
Times change for them as residents of "The Swan" and the heart is warmed by the happy times they share in the social atmosphere of the town pub, and torn by the grief they suffer with the tragedies that beset their lives.
Despite tragic circumstances Nancy their daughter grows from a happy child to an attractive successful young woman. However, this comes at a price, with terrible guilt for Chris, betrayal of his love for Penny and the unhappiness he brings to Sandra, who is a key to Nancy's happiness and success.
Years later reflecting on her parents lives, Nancy learns just how strong the bond and love between her parents had been.
"I'm going to miss you so much." Penny said sliding up beside him on the bench seat of the car. On the way to Cowes fighting back her tears she never stopped talking, reminding him of the years they spent together and the good times they had shared.
"My life won't be the same anymore without you Chris, I am going to miss you so much." Penny whispered as she hugged him with tears running down her face.
