(My life) was a living nightmare. Thanks for listening to it and helping me come to terms with it and enabling me to write this story.

You are so kind and I appreciate that very much. Thanks for all your advice.

It would be so nice to be able to see this book on the shelves of bookshops. It would seem like an accomplishment to me and a real victory.

Thank you for putting my mind at rest and telling me that you aren’t shocked by the awful things I am needing to tell you. I am so glad to find someone who I feel I can trust. You really are a gem.

Thank you for everything Marnie, you have helped me so much.
