FRESH START by Heaton Wilson

£5.00

Alice has been married to Bob for over 40 years.

She started wondering … am I really a victim of abuse, or is it just Bob’s way when he’s had a few pints?

But with encouragement from her neighbour Beryl, she finally finds a way out: a chance to make a fresh start.

Bob’s moved out, she’s moved into a new home, and she’s got the support of the man from the property company that bought their old house, and Beryl.

But are they all that they seem?
