The story has not flowed the way I intended. Helena should have married Richard and ridden off to a life in France, instead she has married his brother and found her own happiness. Then I brought Richard back into her life but the words to bring them together did not come, instead I felt her fear at losing everything she cares for.
I am back to concentrating on scenes and seeing if I can actually produce a readable book. So far it amounts to 25,000 words plus additional pages scribbled down.
