At some point in most people’s lives, they are faced with those turning points that require you to make a conscious choice to move forward or allow your past hurts to rule and ruin your life. This is the story of Victoria, who on reaching those moments of dissatisfaction with her life: successful and on track in the eyes of many, finds herself in a crisis of why. On the death of her beloved Nanny, Victoria begins to feel more at odds with her life, without family after some unrevealed upheaval, and limited in friends. Told in a combination of first and third person voicing, the story moves briskly from point to point, allowing the reader to see the generosity of spirit that Victoria displays, the frustration in her relationship with her mother, and her dissatisfaction with her single status. Decisions need to be made, and Victoria resigned her position in the unit, and starts to examine her life more closely, airing out the skeletons in the family closet. With a chance encounter with a former patient, and a blooming love; the story moves on much like a life’s journey, allowing the reader to feel and see her growth and the freedom that letting the past go can bring. A story that will encourage and enlighten readers to the cleansing powers of taking charge of your life, Sandy Appleyard has managed to combine several elements into a neat and easy to follow story that will consistently entertain and surprise through the last page.
