The woman is called QB...the reason is revealed at the end...what the nick name stands for. The man is called Hat because QB looks across at a photo of him and sees him wearing his favourite hat...she can't bear to look at Hat now....Hat is just how she always thinks of him... It is a Bridget Jones style book, but with observations of human behaviour and how the human psyche works...and also how when man strives for spiritual knowledge he often loses sight of living a good life... .

The story tells the tale of love lost and gained, redemption and reconciliation. There can be only one winner...but in the end of this game, does anybody really ever win?
GENRE: Contemporary, Fiction, Romance6,000 words; Excerpt; Chapter One of a 100,000 - 140,000 word novel, most of which is written, but not yet polished.In the late summer, 1992, an artist and a married woman meet at a Corcoran exhibit in which he is featured. The woman’s husband, a career diplomatic service professional, is about to learn that he will be in the Far East for a year. The story of the affair continues for 1000 weeks, almost twenty years, although the affair itself is over—except for occasional rendezvous—after the only year they have together. It is a story of obsessive love, and how it effects their lives. It includes paranormal and spiritual aspects that characterize the timeless nature of their union. Told from the artist’s point of view, the tale unfolds in alternate chapters, a flashback week, followed by a contemporaneous week. The woman cannot forget her lover, but cannot leave her husband. Defying a fundamental precept of Romance writing, in the end, the lovers are not united, which seems enough to condemn this work to the contemporary fiction heaps. The career diplomat leaves the State Department and is elected to Congress, which ultimately eliminates any possibility . . . The artist is condemned to search for her in every crowd and fantasize about finding her, if not in reality, in a surrogate, or in another world. A final misunderstanding breaks all contact, and the earthly saga ends with the artist’s death and an unobserved afterlife visitation.

“Tommy, get in here this minute!” his mother shouted. “I’m trying to mum but I’m having trouble with Bonnie.” Tommy yelled back. “If she won’t come, leave her and hurry up inside.” His mother commanded. Tommy loved his puppy and was not prepared to obey this command. Tommy struggled with the dog in his arms and slowly made his way towards the house being guided by the light shining from the open door. When he only had about a hundred yards to go to reach the safety of the house there was a lull in the storm and an eerie calmness befell the area around the house. He stopped to look at the heavens and saw a beam of light coming from the clouds and getting brighter as it came nearer to the earth. He stood fascinated, watching the light coming towards him, fearful of what was to happen next. He could hear his mother calling him, as if from a long distance and as he turned to look towards his home he could see her reflection in the light of the doorway. He shook his head and started advancing once again towards the back door. As he was walking the light started to fade away until there was no light at all and he was left in total darkness. He called out to his mother and heard a faint reply, and then there was total silence. No sound of the wind or pelting rain, just total eerie silence.
