Second in Epic 7-part Serial: When Two Souls Collide

The Endless Pursuit of Love and Wisdom

In essence a love story, "A Life Singular" is a seven-part contemporary fiction serial. Part Two takes us back to the very beginning, as our successful rock star and his children use his autobiography to ease their grief and celebrate the loss of their wife and mother.

The books' themes are triumph over mental illness, the choices we make between right and wrong, and how one affects the other over the relentless passage of time. Sales proceeds go to two Australian non-profit organisations assisting young people with their education: EdConnect Australia and The Smith Family.

Dealing with some of the more complex social justice issues of our age, the universal theme of love and our fascination for celebrity spirit the reader behind the scenes of a superstar family who are plunged into grief, proving that there are always many sides to a story we see in the media. The important events in our public lives are always overshadowed by the backstory's real truth.

˃˃˃Part Two Synopsis

Writing an autobiography on behalf of someone else presented Jeff with an interesting dilemma. Did he make assumptions about what Lynn would have included, or should he restrict her contribution to direct quotes from her letters and diaries? He had their kids to protect, and her parents…

As he worked through the huge amount of material available in the press about their life as it had taken shape, interlacing it with highly personal stories, the widower crafted chapter after chapter of memories, both happy and heartbreaking. If this was to be a true account of their partnership, he owed it to the memory of his beautiful best friend to cover so much more than what was already on public record.

When it came to adding his own reminiscences of those early months, about meeting someone he already knew intimately, Jeff had no difficulty in recalling every single, vivid moment. Entire conversations came back to him, sometimes word for word, rushing through his fingers and into the computer.

Photographs prompted him too, as did the treasured possessions that surrounded him, like the old leather jacket he had received on his twentieth birthday. Lynn had left him shortly after that, just like she had left him now. The pull of being together again was unrelenting, but Jeff hung on to the dream that their life singular would one day resume. Once their story had been told.

˃˃˃ 5* Reviews - Even better than Book One!

"So having read the second instalment of this epic, I am now well and truly hooked. My initial reservations about the length have been negated by the slightly quicker pace to part two, and the additional level of polish. It is also slightly shorter than part one.

Dealing with bereavement, Jeff reminisces how he and Lynn met as he writes his autobiography, and Pestell has captured the sense of romance perfectly. This only emphasises the tragedy of events in book 1. Jeff was a handsome songwriter from a tough background, who managed to book himself an unlikely date with tennis player / pop star, Lynn. The skeletons in Jeff’s closet gave him many doubts about the unfolding relationship, but Lynn’s trust gradually helped him to heal the scars of the past. What I particularly loved was how this was very much a warts-and-all relationship, how the pair accepted and understood who the other was, and formed such a powerful bond as a result. This made their love seem so real.

The sex scenes are hot and steamy, the tender moments are intimate and powerful, and the balance of it all is near-perfect. This is a great sequel/prequel of what is becoming a very impressive series, and I urge those who are daunted by the length to not be put off; it is quality that matters, and this series has it in abundance.

A Life Singular, Part 2 - by Lorraine Pestell

A reader of romance novels will enjoy this intimate emotional odyssey.

Jeff Diamond, a well-liked,"swarthy, good-looking," song-writer from the very wrong side of the tracks, packs his "old dark blue Ford Fairlane" with his few "worldly possessions" and leaves his life behind for the chance to meet tennis athlete/pop star, Lynn Dyson, his obsession. His rehearsed speech wins a date with this lovely young woman, unspoiled by wealth and fame, and so begins their idyllic love story.

He is living on the edge, suppressing a past he would prefer to stay buried. Is she safe with him? Her love is unconditional, and is shown to heal him of deep emotional scars. We all wish to believe in such devotion. We get a very real glimpse into his ongoing struggle with PTSD, and how he manages to find strength.

The telling style is detailed and earnest, heartfelt, but liberally spiced with sex scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as great as the first book! 3 November 2014
By Beverly Clark - Published on Amazon.com

I liked the first book in the series a lot.  

In this book I was pleasantly surprised that the author peeled the layers back a bit more to reveal Jeff and Lynn’s story of how they met and the details of their early life together.

I was glad that the second book was written this way as it gave me a lot more insight about the pair. It also gave insight regarding how a person may cope with the sudden loss of a spouse.  In this case, our main character, Jeff, decides to write the story of how and he Lynn first met.

This was a sweet love story but also bittersweet as I knew it was being written after the character Lynn had died.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 Does Not Disappoint! 6 November 2014
By Wilson R. - Published on Amazon.com

I read the first book and found the story to be well written. The courtroom scenes were detailed and kept my interest.

I was glad to open this book and see that the author did something a bit different – instead of moving on, we instead went back to the past.

Told from Jeff’s viewpoint, the reader learned how Jeff and Lynn met and their early days together. This book really meshed well with the first book and gave me a solid look at both characters.

This is a solidly written series that has drawn me in to the story from the beginning. The ending was good and made me eager to continue the series.
