Norma Budden currently makes her home in Arctic Canada where she has lived for more than two decades. Administration Manager by day and writer/mother/grandmother by night, Norma knows what it's like to be busy and appreciates moments of solitude, perhaps, more than the average person.
Though Norma's first serious attempts at writing involved poetry and song, she later went on to write non-fiction titles. However, over recent years, her truest passion seems to be in writing stories to appeal to readers' emotions, with a touch of mystery and romance built into the stories.
Norma is the proud author of the Freedom in Love Series which, currently, has five titles published: An Affair to Remember, When Love Abides, Soul Confessions, Divided Loyalties and The Promise.

Ms. Budden and I share several social media circles together. I've been watching this book grow from the first inkling of an idea to production. I was hesitant at first to read the book due to the subject matter - abuse. I'm really glad that I challenged myself to read this book. It is very well written.
The story is written in first person. The reader views the thoughts of the main character, Kelly, as she re-lives her not so pretty past.
The pace kept me wanting to see what would happen next - Kelly's life was full of the good and the bad that life had to offer her. I cheered for the good and wanted to wish away the bad but as we all know real life doesn't work that way. So I watched the story unfold before me.
I learned a few things that I hope that I might be able to share with people that I know who are or have suffered abuse at the hands of another.
