Overview

Two friends, Sandy and Angela, join a rambling group in the hope of meeting boyfriends. The girls are unused to walking and ill-equipped for the expedition they set out upon.

Early in the walk Angela hurts her ankle and is tended by Rob, to whom she takes an instant liking. Another walker, Chris, offers to take her home but she turns him down, refusing to give up, and continues walking.

When Angela and Sandy later stray from the footpath, they lose sight of the rest of the group. As the weather deteriorates, the girls begin to despair and Angela’s injured ankle becomes unbearable.

Sandy reluctantly leaves Angela to try to find the other walkers. Events that follow challenge both girls' first impressions of their fellow ramblers.

"A really cute, well written short story," (5 Star Review, Barnes & Noble, Aug. 2012).

"Kinda cute. Good for young adults," (4 Star Review, Barnes & Noble, Oct. 2012).

"A great little story," (5 Star Review, Smashwords, Oct. 2014).

Meet the Author

I write women's fiction and romance. My longer works have been described as quirky romances. I also write shorter fiction in the genre of historical romance.

For tasters of my writing, the short stories, 'Opening Night,' 'The Ramblers,' 'The Family Tree,' 'The Office Party' and 'All The Trimmings,' are available to download for free from Smashwords & their retailers.

Many thanks to all who have reviewed, recommended and rated my books. I really appreciate feedback from readers.

'Brizecombe Hall,' a novelette set in England in the early Victorian period, has been my most popular book to date, receiving great responses from readers who appreciate that it's intended to be an homage to the Brontes.

A review of 'Kitty,' my Regency romance, written in an Austen-esque style, concluded, "Well worth your time for a light and light-hearted read. I recommend it to all who just need a small diversion from life."

'Three Romances,' a collection of the stories, 'Brizecombe Hall,' 'Kitty' and my WWII romance, 'The Hangar Dance,' is available digitally and in print.

The novel, 'Elizabeth Clansham,' is also available in both digital and print formats.

My latest contemporary novella is 'Clifton.' There are more short historical romances in the pipeline...

A really cute, well written short story. 42 pages, 38 devoted to the story. For ages twelve and up. This would make a great romance novel. AD
