My next novel, The Monarchs, inspired by my many trips to Mexico, will be coming out soon. Here is the blurb that I am planning for the book cover:
Robert and Sharon, retired teachers, are as committed to each other as any couple could be. Their commitment is exclusive to all others which is exactly how they want it to be.
Much of their enjoyment develops from travelling to their favourite destination, Mexico, and, in particular, the idyllic town of San Miguel de Allende. In fact, their journeys to San Miguel often correspond with the annual migration of the monarch butterflies to the Michoacan state.
Unfortunately, their travels and their simple routines are being hampered by Robert’s ill health and the onset of prostate cancer.
Mexico provides a temporary remedy for the couples’ bitterness, an anger that is aimed at the unpredictability of life.
Robert and Sharon’s devotion is tested at a time when they are faced to make critical decisions about Robert’s health and about whether or not, like the monarchs, making their pilgrimages to Mexico is really the right thing to do.
