After All these Years

After All These Years by Gwen Masters/Forbidden Publications/ebook

One day while waiting for her train Marilyn hears a man talking to her. At first she thinks he is crazy, but soon realizes he isn’t. The man brings back the past with the force of a speeding train. He tells her his name is William and that he once knew her husband. Suddenly the 20 years since her husband’s death doesn’t seem that long ago.

Not sure if she can really trust him, Marilyn decides to take a chance and see what William has to say. The more she talks to him the more she learns about her husband and ultimately about herself. William was afraid to contact her for fear of what would happen. The sparks fly as they get to know each other and talk more about Marilyn’s husband Bobby.

Talking to William turns out to be bittersweet. Marilyn has the chance to relive her life with Bobby but it also brings home the fact that for 20 years she has been alone and missing him everyday.

This is a wonderful and heartwarming story. It is very moving. This is one that once you start reading it you won’t want to put it down until the very last page. It also stays with you long after finishing the last word.

I give this one 5 red roses.
