Her background is intense. Hope this doesn't turn out to be just another run of the mill love story. But, do hope that she dumps all the dirt (ex-husband & kids) and moves on to find her own "happy" with or without a man. Rooting for you Ms. Alessandra Monahan!!!!!
Thnx for the review. Ms. Alessandra Monahan can make it on her own and she can have her happiness alone too with or without a man. It's a romance story though so we shall see how things transpire. Thnx again for commenting.Reviewer: Anonymous Anonymous [Report This]

Thank you for your response. You are very welcome to use any suggestion/s that I have given. It would be an honour. You are one of the few writers on this site that responds to your readers. I always believe that as much as the writers like feedbacks from their readers, so do the readers on getting a bit of acknowledgment on their reviews. You are also open to constructive criticism- (many writers on this site, behave as if it is their worst enemy)- I like that you can embrace- I like that about a writer...it shows great mental maturity and a willingness to grow and be better at your craft.
Sarah Anonymous thnx for your kind words. As much as I like reviews I also want to thnx those reviewers for taking the time to review. I appreciate if someone points out to me something that I have overlooked or make suggestions. Not to say that I will always take the suggestions but at least the reviewer took the time to make one.
As my profile states I welcome constructive criticism but will not tolerate blatant putdowns. This site is like a community. A community of writers and readers. We need to support each other.
As a reader when you read and/or when you offer reviews it helps the writer to know that their work does not go in vain. It shows that someone is reading their material and they're not sending it out into cyberspace never to be said or heard from again.
As a writer, and I can only speak for myself, we write for the fun of it. I'm new to writing. I only started writing last month. I've an avid reader on this site for a few years and have loved the stories by so many of the talented writers on this site. I tried to give reviews whenever I read a story because I wanted the writer to know that I enjoyed their story and I appreciated their effort in writing the story.
As a writer I love reviews. They one let me know that someone read the story and thought enough of it to leave a comment. To me reviews are like seeds, the more that you plant the bigger and better the harvest.
Thnx again for reading and thnx for the review.Reviewer: Sarah Anonymous [Report This]

Let her buy a home outside of London, close to the seashore, but also close to the rail system.

I don't normally read the "mature" stories; thinking; I don't have much in common with them. Your story caught my attention...and I like it. Please continue it regularly.
Stories thnx for reading and reviewing. Glad that my 'mature' story 'caught' your attention. Hopefully you will continue to read and stay on this journey with Alessandra and Alistair.Reviewer: Stories Signed [Report This]

Two times they encounter each other... This is fate😆
Coincidences do happen but it seems here something else in play. How does the phrase go, 'God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform'. We shall see how things transpire.Reviewer: Tre Signed [Report This]

Thank you for the update. I like this story. I can identify with some of the things in the story. I lived in London my throughout my entire teenage years. It was ans to some extent a lovely place. Alister reminds me of my brother-in-law, (He is British as well). They can be very sweet, attentive and protective, when they are in love. She should move to England permanently. The elderly are treated with much more respect and given a lot more dignity- ( not that she is elderly, but as she grows older, she may need that feeling).
Sarah, thnx again for your comments. I appreciate the feedback. Alessandra is still trying her way through this new chapter in her life and is taking things one cautious step at a time. She's not one to make hasty decisions. She will weigh every choice and decide which one best works for her.
No, she's not elderly, at whatever age elderly starts. She keeps herself fit with exercise and sensible eating. She had relatives who lived into their nineties so she has a bit of life left in her. Hopefully she finds 'true' love soon.Reviewer: Sarah Anonymous [Report This]

Urg! Seems like her kids took after their garbage dad. Poor lady, she wasted so much time.
Puccapurple thnx for reviewing. Alessandra has endured a lot but she has grit and determination to plow her way through the hard time. She's come out on the other end stronger and more determined to live life to the fullest. She's not done. Stay tuned.Reviewer: Puccapurple Signed [Report This]

This story seems intriguing. It has a bit of reality to it. My Aunt went through a similar experience. After twenty- eight years of marriage, her husband finally showed his true colors, (we always suspected something iffy about him) and left her for another woman- (after having a dalliance with one of her closest friends). Her children, one of the greatest loves of her life...turned against her- sided with their dad, despite the pain he caused her. The finalnail in the coffin...one of her children lied about the date of their wedding, just ensure that she did not show up. They refuse to to speak to anyone on her side of the family.
I told my Aunt...one day, they will see the error of their ways. However, I hope for their sake, it won't be too late.
Oh my Sarah sorry to hear that your aunt endured such pain. This has happened to a lot of women unfortunately but like Alessandra they plow their way through and come out strong on the other side. There is a lot in store for Alessandra. She's not a quitter and as she said, she will live her life. She has to. You either get busy living or you get busy dying and she has a lot of life left in her. Stay tuned.
Thnx for sharing.Reviewer: Sarah Anonymous [Report This]

I'm on board 😆 Sometimes you got to live life on your own terms😆 Her husband wasn't making her life better... He was making her life stressful😣 As for her children they'll see his true colors one day😕 It's time for mama to live her best life😆 I'm digging this new story😆
Thnx Tre for the review. Thought that I would try an original character story not tied to any movie or tv show. Alessandra had made her way through a difficult marriage and trying to make the best of things. Who knows what blessings await her. She deserves some happiness and LOVE.Reviewer: Tre Signed [Report This]
