A simple tragic love story beautifully written.
I am a journalist and a writer of love stories.I am currently embroiled in an epic series of love stories, which, with luck, will comprise at least 12 novels Two of these novels are already out The Well Tempered Clavier and The Woman Who Made Men Cry with another two due to be published by Thames River Press later this year The next one in the series will be The Woman Who Knew What She Want
