A good portion of this book centered around finding the person responsible for a high profile murder and then the subsequent court trial. It was hard for me to put this book down at night as I wanted to kw what would happen next. I definitely recommend this author as rarely does a book keep me as interested as this one did. A Wonderful Series Begins Here! The characters are well created and there is plenty of details to give this story the layers needed to keep one reading. The author has the ability to move the reader through the emotions being experienced, from love to anguish to feelings raked raw, the reader has his finger on the pulse of what is going on (said and unsaid) with each character. A beautiful tale of true love, devastating loss and the pain of rebuilding a new life from the emotional ashes. A Life Singular by Lorraine Pestell is an emotionally charged, eloquently written struggle of one man's journey through the steps of loss and grief when he loses his best friend and wife to a gunman's bullet. The Diamond family had it all, shared love and respect, wealth, beauty and fame, a fairy tale life to the world who adored them.
- Author BiographyLorraine Pestell was born in London and has had a successful career as an IT professional in the UK, US, Europe, Singapore, and more recently Australia. She currently resides in Melbourne, Victoria, and began her literary journey in 2008. Although working full-time, Lorraine finds that volunteering time and energy to those less fortunate is an effective antidote to life-long depression and the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Sales proceeds from her writing go to two Australian non-profit organizations assisting disadvantaged young people with their education: EdConnect Australia and The Smith Family. The idea for A Life Singular originated in her teens, and has developed over forty years as her life's work; an invaluable therapeutic vehicle for her personal experience and to unpick life's more complex and controversial social justice issues. Lorraine has two main goals for her writing: first, to encourage fellow sufferers of mental illness to rise above their symptoms; and second, to encourage non-sufferers to tolerate, support and even love those afflicted in their quest to live normal lives.
