So here, a bit later in the day than usual, is the news about Rhoda's book, Please Release Me...
What if you could only watch as your bright future slipped away from you?
Sally Cummings has had it tougher than most but, if nothing else, it’s taught her to grab opportunity with both hands. And, when she stands looking into the eyes of her new husband Peter on her perfect wedding day, it seems her life is finally on the up.

And now here's my free ramble on the topic of being stuck...
Losing contact with the outside world is a regular thing when you live where we do. We're stuck in the middle of a Gloucestershire wood, and more than half a mile from the main road. March winds, summer storms or heavy winter snowfalls can, and often do, disrupt the power. When we first moved here, going to bed by candlelight was fun—and who wants to get up early, when you're newly married? When the children were tiny it was even better. We could all be children together, playing snowballs, building snowmen and tobogganing the length of the steep lane which usually connected us with civilisation.
It was when the children started school we discovered the downside to being stuck out in the middle of the countryside, especially in winter. During the Christmas holidays of 2011, a blizzard lasting thirty-six hours presented us with three feet of snow. For the first few days, we were without electricity, broadband, and the landline. It was freezing! We only went outside to feed the hens, top up the bird tables and thaw out their drinking water.
Being stuck miles out in the English countryside, especially when you've got no power or telephone coverage could never be called a good thing, but there are advantages. It's so quiet, you don't get distracted by news and the internet, so you can get lots of writing done. And the scenery is amazing!
