Will Meg survive another Christmas on her own?
'Christmas day ramble. Meet at 1.30pm at the park gates for a 2 mile walk - weather permitting. For more information, please email me.' Meg was satisfied to see her ad in the local newspaper again. She wondered who would turn up. Her mind wandered back to the previous Christmas day… two new people from last year were a retired, gentle vicar called George, and Alec, an attractive, divorced chap around Meg's own age, fifty- something. Last December was Alec's first Christmas without his wife. Meg had sympathised. She knew how it felt to be alone.
