During this journey, fuelled by memories of his unhappy childhood experiences, Chris wants to help others and moves into the psychiatric nursing profession, which gives him a sharp wakeup call and reality check. As the 1980’s fast approach Chris’ passion for fashion remains unabated. The ‘New Romantic’ fashion and music scene is developing, and Chris is in his element. Could this finally be the opportunity he’s been looking for and a doorway into the luxurious world he’s been dreaming about? Has he the courage to follow a dream and re-write his future?

An inspirational, highly emotional and entertaining read for all ages This book is a lovely adventure with an amazing heroine.

Rather, it's a tale packed full of exciting moments and tons of emotions. Matica comes across naturally as does the village and world around her. It's beautifully set and an easy landscape to dive into. The way the author revealed each situation is fun to read and it made one anxious to see what's next. Acceptance was eloquently woven into the story without being blatant. And the other thing I learned was that when certain things happen, you don't always know why and just maybe something goodwill come of it. This book was FINALIST with "BOOK EXCELLENCE AWARD", 2017 Also FINALIST with "IAN-The Independent Authors Network-BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2017 5 star review with Reader's Favorite Next in line: TALON, ON THE WING
