From the Author
I'm a 'Malta-phile' - there must be a more elegant term for it, but I mean that I'm mad about Malta - and if I can't be there, the next best thing is to put my characters there. Although 60% of the book is set in the UK the book begins and ends in Malta, and the story turns on Giorgio, Judith's Maltese lover. Although poor Giorgio leaves the stage quite early on.
It was an absolute pleasure to create Judith, a mature character who loves Malta as I do, somebody who'd cope with loss and beginning again in her own individual style.
