Product description

Product Description

‘I could fall in love with this man,’ I thought fleetingly. But then I remembered. I didn’t do that anymore.’

From the opening words of Elopement: a Memoir, when Maureen Helen sees her friend John’s much loved old yacht rocking gently on the tide, we know she is in for a life-changing adventure. Maureen, nearing seventy, tells John she hopes she can still take on challenges when she is eighty, and he replies, ‘What will stop us?’
Their decision to elope to avoid the complications of a family wedding is a defiant act that symbolises the risk and spirit of adventure that make this story sing. Troubles arise — different ideas of how to share a life in a house that is haunted by painful memories, family troubles, giving up hard-won independence, illness, depression. But love survives. This moving, funny, honest story will surprise and delight you. It fills a gap in our literature in its celebration of the joys, tribulations and transformations that late love can bring.

About the author
Maureen Helen worked as a nurse, family counsellor and health advocate. She has a passion for social justice, in all its forms. She is now a writer, blogger and facilitator of writing groups.

She lives with her husband in Western Australia.
