Peace of Time
By Ros Rendle
Which path will you take…?
Jen and Mike Lucas are happily married, or so Jen thinks.
Recently Mike has been short tempered and cranky, but Jen puts it all down to his stressful job at a finance company.
Jen, on the other hand, loves her job as a teacher. She also makes more money than Mike, which he mentions at any given opportunity. As they drift further apart, Jen tries everything she can think of to save their marriage but all Mike wants to do is spend more and more time at the gym.
When one of Jen’s students, young Charlie Mayhew, suffers a terrible fall from his bike, Jen lends a helping hand to his father, Christopher, a single parent who lost Charlie’s mother to cancer.
Jen does her best to ignore the gossip that Mike was seen getting friendly with a red head at the gym, but a few days later, Jen discovers something that turns her world upside down.
After Mike moves out, Jen realises that she’s reached a crossroads in her life.
Does she give Mike a second chance? Or does she take Christopher up on his offer of a date?
As the summer draws to a close, Jen has some life changing decisions to make and what she decides will shock everyone, but most of all herself…
