Novel Excerpt From The Widows Blade

The Widows Blade by Hamish McKenna

……………. She felt that way now, as they made their way back to the car after watching Toy Story 4 at the movies. Their children were talking to each other about the movie and laughing as they did so…………..

……………..It was only three months after their second son, who they named Matthew, was born that Kathleen’s husband was given a tour of duty in Afghanistan. The tour was to last twelve months. Kathleen was devastated. She was now to be on her own with the two boys for an entire year. She had been aware that this could happen but never in a million years thought that it actually would………….

………………She and the children all waved goodbye to him happy in the knowledge that this would be his last time away from home.
