    You conveyed what so many of us adults, who suffered during childhood, experience: wanting to be strong and sensible when problems arise but dying from fright inside. All the old fears accentuating the new ones. I could just see you sitting on the dock trembling, tears streaming, mosquitoes biting, while wishing with all your heart you hadn’t sat on his sunglasses. Fantastic chapter, Viga!

    Wow! Adjusting to marriage is difficult. Going from one person blaiming you and brow beating you at every turn, and now your husband is blaming you. Harry said something recently of our early married life about having snapped at me for something and then feeling so bad about it shortly afterwards – that father figure vs. husband figure again.

    “Hollywood Head” is a great chapter. It was so well described that I could share your emotions as you sat on John’s sun glasses and later when you sat on the dock. There are so many little things to learn when you are with a new partner. You certainly had a honeymoon to remember. Your story is very good and leaves the reader thinking what will happen next. I guess I will have to wait a whole week to find out.

    I’m thoroughly enjoying reading the installments of the sequel! Every time I get a notification that the next segment is in my inbox I’m excited to find out what happened next. It is a very interesting way to continue on with the story. After reading No Tears For My Father, I was curious to know the path you and John took, leading up to the couple I know today. It’s such an interesting story and also instructional. I feel like I’m benefiting from reading about your patience with your new circumstances in the face of self doubt and fear of the future. I’m sure it resonates with all who read the series. Keep ’em comin’ Viga!

    Wow, you never cease to amaze me, Viga! You are rolling out your sequel at such a rapid pace! I could just so picture all this with poor you taking off after being put on a guilt trip! You had just closed the door on a life of guilt & that was stressful on you! Mr. Absent minded put his sunglasses in an inappropriate place! That was hilarious what he did with the camera! Very well written, my dear/ms Hollywood Head! LOL

    Each chapter leaves me wanting to know what’s going to unfold next, as you try to cope with being a newlywed who never had a childhood. That “flight” mechanism that got triggered when you were in a no-win situation is probably not something you were able to recognize at that age. Fortunately it didn’t lead to disaster! Your daily struggle which was internal and invisible and ongoing, keeps the reader on edge, wanting you to feel free and knowing that you don’t. Thanks for sharing this part of your journey to healing. I think we would all want to buy the book!
