Changes

Changes
by Lesley Atherton

What would you do if you realised that both you and your grown up son would need long term care? How would you cope? Likely with the aid of a sister who loves you both and is always there. Even if she is a half sister.
Even if she has plenty of problems of her own.

So, when you’re concerned about what’s to come, what do you do? You delve into the past. To give you answers for the future.

” Have you ever felt the need to undertake a voyage of discovery? Maggie did. As a young middle-aged single parent, she is devastated to receive a damning health diagnosis, which will have implications for the remainder of her life. That’s bad enough, but she’s also mother to a grown-up son who, while not needing round the clock care, is not able to live on his own. So Maggie needs to investigate options for her future, and she does this with the aid of her sister Sally.

But, when you’re an adopted child with a long-standing health condition, sometimes you need to find out more, and this often means delving into your past.  For better or for worse.

Maggie and Sally journey to the town of Maggie’s birth in the hope of speaking to a family member who might be able to tell her more about her birth mother. This should enable her to make decisions about her own future.

‘Changes’ is a tale of sisterly support, love no matter what, and of the clarity that sometimes you must just keep going, no matter how complex things become.

This book was very important to me as it was written during a time when my life went through enormous changes owing to the death of my mum. It brought to life the fears I had of my own mortality, and the worries any decent parent has for their children’s future. I hope you find it as inspirational and cathartic to read as I did to write. You can read this book for free on Kindle Unlimited, or purchase as a paperback, so please do support this new emerging publishing business, and a not-so-new but still definitely emerging writer.”
