By no means your typical “He done me wrong” tale!
In a raw and flowing narrative Breeze tells us how she went through the full gamut of emotions when abandoned by her husband, lover, best friend and father of their two children - after 28 years of marriage!
Approaching her 50s, the resulting self doubt, hurt and anger on discovering she has been left for a younger woman send Breeze down a rocky road of recovery from loss of self-esteem, loneliness, hurt, anger, suicidal thoughts to acceptance, inner growth and emotional maturity.
To reestablish her self-esteem and persona she tries the Singles game, meeting a series of dull to colorful contenders, gradually growing stronger, over-coming her loneliness and pain to understand she was in no way to blame for husband’s abandonment and finally being at peace with herself and leading a vibrant, happy life.
Studded with humor and some uniquely Australian expressions, this is a wonderfully inspiring read written by a woman who has laid her soul out to bare and so brutally honest one can only admire her for having turned one of the cruelest of life’s betrayals into a learning curve to reach emotional maturity and become a happy, autonomous woman.
Highly recommended to men as an education and definitely to women – to younger women as part of their own education and – to older women - as a story we can all relate to in some way and can learn from!

Yes, this is a story about a breakup of a marriage. But it is also so much more than that.
For those of you, who have sadly been through a relationship split, it may resonate with you in many ways.
If(like this reader)you have not(yet!)experienced the shock and pain of a split, you may find it incredibly candid & powerful in is page turning ability to capture you into the very being of the author character. I was consumed with wanting to know 'what happened next ?'
Every relationship split has its own tale. This is no different yet it is so different. There are more than a few twists in this surprising dissolution of a marriage. There are also plenty of 'non relationship issues' broadening its appeal.
Do take the time to ponder the very well chosen brief song lyrics so beautifully hinting at the next chapter's contents. Reflect on the aptness of the ascribed mythological character names.
But, do be prepared to perhaps find yourself drawn into the pages, shouting 'yes' 'no' as the engaging author character takes you on a bumpy,raw,lively,humourous,thought provoking journey with plenty of optimism, which may or may not have a happy ending...you will want to find out !
