Tom Wallace is a man who has been married to the love of his life for half of his life, and they've been having a few issues lately - and then he finds a photo that destroys his life.

He has one other love, Lady Ester - his yacht, and he takes off on her only to discover an adventure.

This is a well written story that is similar to quite a few of A.A. Nemo's, so if you've read some of the others then you'll enjoy this.

I would look for "One Woman Man" after this, for another story that might be interesting for you, and might hold some clues about what was next for this couple.

A staggeringly good story.

How does one describe the feeling of horror when I realised that this story had ended?...that "A A Nemo" would not be telling us all what the final outcome was?...after we had been totally and completely engrossed for over an hour?...after we had dropped any pretence of working and plowed onwards until the ending hit us in the face?...that we would not find future chapters to bring us closure? "A A Nemo" really would allow the reader to decide in his or her own mind what came next?

Initially I had hated the story. I do not like "cheating wife" stories. But there was enough spark in this to keep me reading - shall we say that the author played the line perfectly until the fish found that the hook was way too well set to allow allow me to spit it out. I HAD TO read it right to the end.

Damn this is well written. Almost perfect construction. Back and forth between the protagonists. We read one chapter while yearning to be back reading about the progress in the other.

Truly "could not put it down" material. And all totally believable. No "suspension of disbelief" in this one. Any person with an ounce of humanity and about the same amount of imagination will LOVE this story.

Now I'm going to give away even more potentially billable hours to read some more of "A A Nemo"'s work. Heaven knows how I'll feel at the end of the day. :-)

Thanks to "A A" for a wonderful escape from "real life".
