Wide Awake Asleep - coming Christmas 2016
Village girl Julie Compton couldn’t wait to leave Potterspury, her mum, boyfriend and best friend when they turned against her and turned her cossetted life upside down and inside out.
Unable to forgive then, she left for London and threw herself into making a name for herself in the perfume industry.
Twenty years later, and with adult hindsight, she can see that she played an active part in her adolescent misery.
But it was too late to rectify things now. Her mum was dying, her boyfriend and best friend had both died. And the village where she grew up had moved-on without her.
It’s strange how things turn out, isn’t it?
‘Time travel may be possible for some,
but it happens at impractical times and when you least expect.’―
