The Kiss

My first novel and it's part of a trilogy called "Pete, Fay, Love."

Oh, well, I never do things by halves.

The book was promoted as "the antidote to Eat, Pray, Love" and I entirely endorse that.

I really disliked the entire ethos of "East Pray Love" which promoted an attitude of selfishness and being self-centred, a view of life that one can do anything one likes and the consequences for others don't matter.

Nah. That's not my thing at all. I believe that everyone should respect everyone else, to take into account the effect that one's own actions have on other people. I believe in a gentler approach, of courtesy, where men open doors for women and where women see it as respect not belittlement; a world where bullies get their just desserts and where gratuitous insults are more likely to get the speaker ostracised than to see the victim isolated.

But most of all, I believe in love, a love that endures, a love that transcends trials and tribulations and where people take time to get to know each other before committing to a lifetime together - and once that commitment has been made, to move heaven and hell to keep it.

And so, to "The Kiss." A couple, deeply in love, concluded that they could not spend their lifetimes together because circumstances would make it impossible, no matter how hard they tried.

The Kiss is the first part of the trilogy which starts in the recent past and moves on for half-a-century into the future. Pete and Fay talk to their friends over the years and their original story unfolds as their futures intertwine, even though they don't know it's happening.

It's a short book - most people will read it in an hour.
