#3 Becoming Madam Widow by Katherine Webster

Becoming Madam Widow by Katherine Webster
After the sudden and devastating death of her husband and business partner, an intransigent woman enters a period of her life immersed in fear, self-doubt and near financial ruin. Existing in a web of loneliness and isolation in the small town where she lived with her husband, she struggles to find answers and the way out of her chaos wondering every day if she should even actually go on.

This is the true story of a woman whose independence, faith and strength are rocked to the core of her being and all at a time in her life when she thought she had it all figured out. The battles, challenges and decisive action she takes will either help her sink or swim, do or die, survive or thrive. The hard lessons she learns and the distress that confronts her are the collective elements that guide her in her quest for life after his death.

It becomes a voyage complete with fear and loneliness, but also one of joy, enlightenment and finally true independence. This is a book for all women about the mental, spiritual and emotional journey of a lifetime.

#4 GRAN Tour of the UK by Sue Johnston

GRAN Tour of the UK by Sue Johnston
A very scary thought–undertaking a 2500-mile tour of the UK. All alone, by car and foot. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. A mature widow previously teaching computing and word processing, I determine to keep up to date, challenging myself; internet, email, Facebook, Instagram had never been heard of.

I have published articles over the years, children’s comics, jokes for comedians and written lectures for adult education, and was a manager for Avon Cosmetics. My four-year-old car sitting neglected in my drive; my tour involved two months of organising in advance.

I still have to learn a lot about my iPhone–it got me lost twice! Back to my children and grandchildren for more tuition. is my saviour. Sat-nav TomTom is my guide. Find Friends keeps me in touch. The next tour will be to Ireland (Eire)–already in the planning stage.
