Product Description

Product Description

Three young men, all friends since school-days, are heading for the ski-slopes in the French Alps in well-loved, but not awfully well-maintained Alfa Romeo. Sure enough, the car decides to break down in the middle of nowhere, a couple of hundred kilometres from their destination. Only one of them speaks sufficient French to be trusted to summon help. Young Terry Cooper sets off in the snow to find any habitation with a telephone.
Half-way up a hill he finds an ornate pair of gates leading who knows where. At the gate he sees an attractive woman clearly ill-equipped for the worsening conditions. He starts speaking to her, to be distracted by a passing car. When he looks back, the woman has gone. The only way she could have gone is through the gate. He reasons that some habitation must be within walking distance, so he opens the gates and walks up the long drive. At the end he finds a large house, but no sign of the woman. Upon ringing the doorbell, he is admitted and is able to alert the recovery agent for the car. The butler, however, mistakenly assumes Terry is a bedraggled young woman, as his build and length of hair would indicate. On being led back to the front door by the butler, he sees a portrait in the hall. It is of the woman he saw, only dressed in an elegant evening dress.
He enquires as to who she is, and is shocked and surprised to learn that she is Theresa, the late countess, having died some eighteen months ago. At that moment the woman's husband demands to know what is happening,
On seeing Terry, the Comte Armand is shocked beyond words; for Terry resembles his Theresa to an uncanny degree. On learning that Terry is an artist, and despite knowing nothing about him or his work, Armand commissions Terry to paint a mural of his late wife on a wall in his home. Terry agrees, as the Frenchman offers him a silly amount of money to undertake the task.
The matter of the car is resolved, and on the following day, the friends head off in a rental car for the slopes.
After the holiday, Terry returns to the French mansion and starts work. On his return, however, things start to go very strange indeed. It appears that the woman he thought he saw may not have disappeared through the gates. He comes to realise that the only other place for her to go was into him.
Terry starts along a very different road in life to which he had expected to go.

More About the Author

Tanya Allan is a prolific writer of various works, including novels, short stories and poetry. Some of her work, relating to transgender issues, may be familiar to those who feel that perhaps life would have been easier had they been born with a body and mind of the same gender. Her other - non-TG work has also been published, but under a different name.

Tanya is now settled in the southern half of the United Kingdom (sometimes known as England). Born and educated in Scotland, and having experienced over a half century of life, in a myriad of guises, mostly involved keeping the realm safe and secure from enemies, both domestic and foreign, Tanya has a more sedate life now, concentrating on grandchildren, dogs, travel and writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two T's 27 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very good tale. Spoilt by the awful editing. I am certain that the Author didn't writ it like this. And why Oh why do you insist in including so many obscenities, just for the American market? When checking a work do pay attention to the text. Missing letters and words mar the whole tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to her best 20 April 2014

In "When I Count to Three" I accused Tanya of combining some of her other books to make that one. This one however was original, well written and quite different to her other books. All on all an enjoyable read.
