A review by E.Nash (taken from Amazon)
The six stories in Moving On have varied characters and locations but are linked by a common theme of changing relationships. I have three particular favourites.
Firstly, Rain takes an honest look at a couple on the brink of break-up. The dry heat is as oppressive as their resignation but just when all seems lost, the rain arrives, as does their passion.
My favourite of them all, Daisy Chain, takes a look at the rippling effect of our actions, through the eyes of two young cousins confessing secrets. Alex describes their feelings of guilt beautifully.
Taking the Waters completes the set and sees a man regretting his affair. His growing tension and self-realisation is gripping - but is he too late to pull back and return to his wife?
I recommend these stories to anyone who enjoys reading about relationships. Alex has written with honesty and skilfully woven stories everyone can relate to. A quick but rewarding read.
