Set in Ventnor, a quaint seaside town on the Isle of Wight off the south coast of England, this bitter-sweet love story describes the lifetime of Chris and Penny from their childhood.
As the story unfolds from the early fifties, picturesque scenes from around the island are intertwined in their story of undying love and devotion, and recall features of those early days now long gone.
Times change for them as residents of "The Swan" and the heart is warmed by the happy times they share in the social atmosphere of the town pub, and torn by the grief they suffer with the tragedies that beset their lives.
Despite tragic circumstances Nancy their daughter grows from a happy child to an attractive successful young woman, through the devotion and determination of those who love her. However, this comes at a price; with terrible guilt for Chris, betrayal of his love for Penny and the unhappiness he brings to Sandra, who is a key to Nancy's happiness and success.
Years later reflecting on her parents' lives, Nancy learns just how strong the bond and love between her parents had been.

About the Author
With pressure of work, raising a family and my interest in restoring Vintage and Classic cars, I never found time for writing other than poetry and was proud to have six of my poems selected for publication in “20th Century Poets” in 1977. Encouraged by this achievement I decided to write about a romantic encounter I had as a teenager but only completed the first chapter, after retirement I wrote the romantic novel “The Guitar Man”.
I married Patricia the girl next door in Sept 1966, and moved to Sidcup, Kent in 1970. We have two sons, one in Sydney Australia and the other in Florida U.S.A.
