The Finding

Alan M. Keef

Flying back from her African holiday, country girl Jennifer Suffram has failed to find herself but did find a nice man, David Wear; and as she tries to settle back down into her rural life and work, she increasingly finds that she cannot get him out of her head. Dare she really break with her fiancé and head deep into the North Country on some wild manhunt on the strength of a hasty letter, one stranger's kindness and some ill-remembered contact details?

Will she regret what she does find?

Should she feel a fool or a Florence Nightingale to find herself nursing a man who seems to have no kith or kin he can trust, but whose old nurse now works for his family business? Can romance flourish with a man whose family has skeletons in its cupboard, but cannot open his heart to the woman he claims to love?

Paperback  |   Hardback   |   eBook


Alan M Keef has a business building small railways for the industrial and leisure markets that he describes as a hobby that got out of hand, but for all that, it has taken him to some of the less glamorous countries around the world.
Writing The Finding was actually started in the Mkonge Hotel, when he had a day to kill, and little else to do.
His having lived in the Cotswolds for nearly twenty years and, having spent a small part of his education and rather more of his business life, in and around Carlisle, provides a background to this story.
Having written a number of non-fiction books, this is his first full-length novel.
He is widowed, remarried and lives and works in Herefordshire.
