Following on from the turbulent events described in “A Chronicle of Intimacies”, John Raynor’s luck seemed, at last, to be turning in his favour.
In January, 1993, he flew from Manchester to the Philippines to meet Aleth Ledres, a Filipina twenty-three years younger than him. The two have been writing for several months and, within a short space of time, they fell in love and their marriage was planned for April.
Unfortunately, nothing was ever simple for John and Aleth as many problems seem to prevent them from enjoying a life together in the U.K.
Cultural differences, the Catholic Church and British immigration officials all seemed destined to destroy any chance of future happiness.
This true account of the couple’s romantic adventures echoes The uncanny forecasts of the psychic’s predictions.

Excerpt

Quote : "I should point out, Mr. Raynor, that my officer and I were not obliged to see you. We do try to consider the feelings of the husband if he should be present, so it is a concession to you to see you at all." He obviously felt that nothing more needed to be said and began to collect his papers together.
It seemed hopeless. "Is there nothing at all you can do for us?"
"I'm afraid not. There is the appeals procedure which you are entitled to use, but, other than that, there is nothing else I am able to suggest."
He obviously did not feel the least bit concerned about the situation they had forced us into. To them, Aleth was just a brown folder in a filing cabinet.
The meeting was obviously over, but, as I stood up, I said firmly, "Well, I'll tell you one thing for certain, Mr. Shead. Whatever obstacles you put in our way, I promise you that, in twelve months time, my wife will be living with me in Britain." I purposely missed the prefix 'Great' out of my native country's name, such was my bitterness at the treatment and humiliation of the past two days.
