Fourth in the Epic 7-part Series: Together, Forever, Wherever The Endless Pursuit of Love and Wisdom In essence a love story, "A Life Singular" is a seven-part contemporary fiction serial. "A Life Lived" invites the reader to the celebrity couple's wedding and later to witness the arrival of two little gems. The books' themes are triumph over mental illness, the choices we make between right and wrong, and how one affects the other over the relentless passage of time. Sales proceeds go to two Australian non-profit organisations assisting young people with their education: EdConnect Australia and The Smith Family. Dealing with some of the more complex social justice issues of our age, the universal theme of love and our fascination for celebrity spirit the reader behind the scenes of a superstar family who are plunged into grief, proving that there are always many sides to a story we see in the media. The important events in our public lives are always overshadowed by the backstory's real truth. >Synopsis So this was it Lynn and Jeff, two celebrities driven to change the world together, had grasped their life singular with both hands and were not about to let go. They had the Midas touch, gifted through the virtues of reciprocity and a deepening understanding of right versus wrong. The prospect of turning two into four, mirroring the black jetstone ring that lived on the handsome man's right hand, filled the couple with excitement. Never in his wildest dreams had the no-good street kid imagined himself as a father. His own had given him nothing. So much less than nothing, in fact. Should Jeff settle that score? Was it worth disturbing the paradise they had planned, where their well-established careers showed no sign of slowing down and their hard work yielded so much for so many? Surfacing past wrongs and holding people to account for setting them right were part and parcel of letting go, his dream girl had insisted. And who was he to argue? She had been right all along. As the book's extraordinary chapters continued to document the achievements of their life singular, the solitary author cried and smiled in equal measure through the arrival of a small boy with blond, curly hair and the sultry gipsy girl who could see inside his soul from the moment she was born. Lynn had given him two new friends who must now be steered through their young lives, learning their own lessons about the endless pursuit of love and wisdom. 5* Reviews - Exploration of love, morality and adversity is thought-provoking "I was given the first four books in this series in exchange for fair and honest reviews. **For those who are unfamiliar with this series, the first thing I must say is you need to start with book one. In book four, widow Jeff continues with his autobiography and shares more of his life with his beloved Lynn. Having read the first three books, I feel I know these (fictional) people on a personal level, having shared so much of their experiences. A Life Singular is a romance story told with such care and attention to detail that I struggle to believe the author is not recapping real events. The exploration of love, of morality, of adversity is wonderfully woven.
