I didn't intend to read the story immediately, but glad I did.
Martin, keeping a much normality in his life as possible but probably the only thing they were both constantly thinking of was his death.
I have seen the Amalfi coast and it is as beautiful as described.
I feel that Martin and his wife were being so brave and he still thought he could attract the women ie the "film star " courier.
I hope I am never in the same situation but if I am, I hope I can act in the same way and enjoy life rather than give up .
This story ticks lots of boxes for me: interesting, evocative descriptions of the setting; gentle laughs; an element of the unexpected; touching portrait of a marriage; moving tale about living with terminal cancer and coping with the prospect of death.
And it is really well-written. If you enjoyed this story, treat yourself to "Shy Feet" for more of the same quality - though every tale is different!
I love the cover designs, by the way - as fresh and vibrant as the writing itself. Great work, Frances M Thompson!

One person's way of dealing with imminent death by concealing it from the rest of the family wouldn't be my choice. The images conjured up of the Amalfi coast are good.Published on 5 Mar. 2015 by Malcolm
