This is a true story that spans the sweeping account of a unique affair between two women. In the face of adversity and against all odds, the relationship has blossomed immeasurably and thrived happily. Christine, a 59 year old English lady, meets 33 year old, German, charismatic and lovely Alexandra, in Cape Town in 2002. Alexandra is working in a high-powered job in Malawi and visiting Christine's neighbour in Simon's Town for Christmas. The women are introduced and a powerful and mutual attraction overtakes them which neither has experienced before. This book encompasses a love story, covert undercover work and a life starting from Manchester to Cornwall, London, South Africa and finally Kenya. It’s about making the most of given opportunities and achievements. It is about late love and immense happiness, and covers the gambit of human emotion and the human spirit.
Excerpt from the book:
“Was I in love?
It hit me like bolt lightning out of the blue. I was in love with this girl as sure as eggs is eggs. This was what falling in love was all about – lightning running through my veins at the thought of Alex. This was devastatingly dangerous ground I was walking on. A female twenty-six years younger than I was. This could not be happening to me, but undoubtedly it was. ‘Take stock,’ I told myself, ‘this can go absolutely nowhere, absolutely nowhere at all’. The emotional pendulum swung as each day went by. One day I was a grown up, mature and intelligent woman, who was strong enough and needed to put a full stop to this growing attraction – the next day I would not be so strong and any attempt to cancel my trip flew out of the window.”
