The best thing about this short story is that it's about people we all know. You can relate to the characters instantly which means you care about them. It's also a story about how travel can have significant meaning for people, regardless of whether the trip is short or long. Places are more than a dot on a map - and the Amalfi Coast is a perfect example. I look forward to more stories and I heartily recommend reading this one!

I read this story in one sitting and really enjoyed it. I liked the interpersonal dynamics and the flowing storyline but I was particularly affected by the location and felt as if I had been transported to the Amalfi Coast along with the characters. I recommend this story.

A lovely book.
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 .

I didn't spot this freebie on here until I accessed the author's page to review her debut collection of short stories, "Shy Feet", in which this story also appears.

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!

A friend recommended this to me because he, like the man in the story, is a fifty-something Yorkhsireman called Martin. My friend was being funny. It was free to download so I did. Then between my usual cup of reading tea I thought I'd try it. Absolutely loved it. A brilliantly written short story that provides excellent characterisation and sense of place together with an underlying theme of great sadness well handled. At the time of writing, another free Amazon gem. From one self-publisher to another, I wish the author all the best.

This book is a very human story which softly takes you along on Martin and his wife's journey. It is easy to become attached to the pair as they feel so familiar. It's a beautifully constructed story which leaves you almost wanting more but also happy to wonder. I really look forward to more stories from the series.

Reading this book transported me straight back to my holiday in Italy. The backstreet terraces, balconies, vespas and a trip to Pompeii - if only it could have brought the sunshine back too! A great quick read, it brought back plenty of memories but also had me a bit teary on more than one occasion. I look forward to the next one!

This is a great little short story. The characters are believable, the action is funny, evocative and moving and I inhaled it in two and a half tube journeys. Can't wait for the full collection of short stories to appear.
