Jenny and Peter had been married for a long time and she thought it was out of character for him to just send a message to meet for coffee, but she decided to go anyway after all a bit of romance in their relationship would be a welcome diversion.

about the author

I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.

What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.

A stranger’s help by Maria Adams on 05 September 2017

Sometimes life can become hum drum, repetitious and predictable!!

The day that Jenny went to meet her husband for coffee, a stranger added interest, adventure and a purpose to her day.

Will it make her rethink her life and implement some changes to reignite the flame that has started to wain? An interesting concept and a good listen.
