Blurb

I started writing this book nine years ago and I realised I had to learn my grammar, punctuation and spelling all over again, I can tell you that was not fun but the people I learnt with made it fun. I am a mother and grandmother and I was a carer to my late husband. I have been widowed twice now. I have also written poems and I started on a new book. I have decided to make this a series because of the length of the book and no I do not wish it cut down. I am the eldest of seven kids and both my parents are gone. Most of my family live in Scotland. one lives in England with her husband. I never aspired to become an author but I seem to enjoy writing stories. I love unusual names and have used some in my book as you will see when you read it. I have always loved reading ever since I as five and still love reading today even though I'm fifty-nine. I love nothing more than getting lost in a book. I also love music, my grandkids all twelve, walking, watching a movie, meeting and making friends even new ones. I don't have any pets but I do like dogs and cats. I have been to America when I was pregnant with my son David and I would love to go back again and yes I have family there,

The year is 2346

Little does she know that at one minute past midnight on the morning of the 8th, her life as she knows it will be turned upside down, when she hears the plaintive cries ------- of a man.

Aliviah : I’m in love with the book but the ending is more of a cliffhanger. But other than that the book was alright. Um I have nothing to say. I think that the sex scenes could have been better
