When Amy discovered that her husband, Carl, actually preferred other men to her, she moved out and into their beach house. They remained married, but lived separate lives. After more than three years of living alone, with no real interest in finding someone, she met Burt. He was a widower whose wife had died just over a year ago, and like Amy, wasn't actually looking for someone. But their mutual attraction soon caused Amy to decide it was time to divorce Carl and get on with her life, to see where the relationship with Burt would go.
This was the last romantic short story written by Marcia Dickson before her death in June, 2014. She was a retired housewife that enjoyed writing and her grandchildren.
