The day Nola Duncan married the charismatic scientist Dr Michael Westfield in 1981 was the happiest day of her life. Michael, a senior academic, was Nola's 'perfect man' - a good father; a wonderful host, cook and raconteur; a devoted husband and caring lover; a good friend and a committe Christian. Throughout their 30-year marriage, Michael, a deeply romantic man, wrote Nola copious love notes, letters, and poems. So when he died suddenly of a cardiac arrest in 2010, her grief was profound. In a box marked 'research papers' Nola found something that would shatter her life; 741 love letters between Michael and his lover, evidence of his passionate six-year affair with one of his doctoral students, a young married woman 23 years his junior. This book tells Nola's story.
