London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 19, 2008 -- A book about bonds, death and humour that helps reflect about the value of life. This fourth work from Marilyn Rice opens up a world of images and feelings, a series of moments over a lifetime that can change the perspective and the actual meaning of one's life.
Knowing that you are going to die might cause some people to be angry, depressed or give up on life. When Sofia visits her psychic and finds out that she is going to die she faces the news with resolve and determination to make as much of her life as possible. Fighting to free herself from the restrictive boundaries of her overbearing husband and creating memories and futures for her children that will survive after she is gone occupy a lot of her remaining time.
But when all the predictions don't seem to be coming true as the psychic said Sofia has to start to question whether or not the most important prediction of all was true.
Marilyn L Rice tackles the issue of death with sensitivity and humour, compelling the reader to feel hope rather than despair in the face of a life ending. Looking to the positive changes and things that could be achieved within a lifetime, no matter how short that might turn out to be, is particularly poignant.
After years spent teaching at secondary school, Rice decided to change her life course and start a career in writing. She launched her first book "Time & Tide" in 2001." No Regrets" followed in May 2003. Then, "Stay in Touch" in 2005 and on September 16th 2007 at Slaithwaite in Yorkshire, she launched her fourth work, "Look After Each Other". And there's more to come...
