The Emergence of Judy Taylor

by Angela Jackson

Judith is married with a good job and a nice house. Then, a cancer scare triggers a complete re-think and, to the consternation of her husband, family and friends, she makes a life-changing decision. A sensitive story of first loves and second chances, and one which will strike a chord with many readers!


'I just feel as if I'm wasting my life a bit, really. I feel like I'm stuck on some treadmill - I know that's a cliché but its true, I do.'
'We all feel like that sometimes, though, Jude. Is it serious enough to leave everything behind? Not just Oliver, but everything.'
'What everything?'
'Well, your friends, for a start.'
'I don't mean ... I know I have friends here, but it's not like I'm moving to another planet. I'm just moving away from here. We'll still see each other.'
'Jude, I don't know where this has come from but can you not just ride it out for a bit? Most people feel like this at some point, but then they knuckle down again. It's not unusual. It passes.'
