Coming of Age Romance: Grace
by Samuel J. Lumley
New Adult Contemporary Love Story: A Journey of Unconventional Love
In 1962 Tony Brown was a restless 18 year old with plans to try his hand at surfing on Devon’s west coast. Leaving Essex behind, he meets Mary who is also travelling to Devon.
Although she is more than twice his age, and against her better judgement love blossoms. Their short, unconventional, whirlwind affair during the summer of that year ends in disaster with devastating consequences.
44 years later, after a successful career which began in Pennsylvania, Tony Brown is travelling back to Devon, back to Mary. Very ill and not expecting to live much longer, she decides she must share a secret with Tony before it is too late.
Samuel J. Lumley was born yesterday. Well not really, I was born in 1945, and Samuel J. Lumley is the name I decided to call myself after I had finished writing my first novel, Grace.
I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I left school and I’ve had various occupations during my working life. Salesman, Landscape Gardener, Milkman, Production Manager, Upholsterer, Work Study Engineer. As a result I’ve met and worked with a lot of people from various backgrounds and I’ve found that one way or another we are all characters in a story.
Looking back, I can’t say I found what it was I wanted to do or be. Writing Grace is the one single task of all the things I have done that gave me real satisfaction. And that alone is good enough for me. I think it’s a great story, based on real people I have met and real events I know about.
What One Reader Had To Say!
An intriguing book, it builds to a great emotional finale. We follow the characters over the generations as we see the holiday romance bloom and change the lives of Tony and Mary but we don’t find out how much till 44 years later. It develops into a very touching story and the author has constructed a great story with some terrific characters and the pace is superb as the story develop as you learn more about the characters. Five stars from me.
