Mary Turner  Thompson has won the accolade ‘Best Seller’ for this book, and the coveted little orange badge.  You will understand why when you read her story, which I give 4 STARS to:


Mary Turner Thompson is an intelligent woman and is now a full time author, but started out as a marketing consultant, business adviser and motivational trainer.  She had a good career and her own home, but had the bad luck to be taken in by an extremely manipulative con-man.

Will Jordan had charm and good looks, and he knew how to use them to get what he wanted.  He also had an insatiable need for vast amounts of cash, with no scruples about how he would go about obtaining it.  Once he had wooed and wedded Mary he systematically set about relieving her of her life savings, which she gladly gave to him as the explanations he gave for needing the money seemed so plausible.  He also tended to disappear for long periods of time, even missing the births of his children,  but was always full of remorse on his return.  There would be another believable excuse, and Mary was certain he was telling the truth until she received a phone call one day.

When she picked up the receiver there was a woman on the other end of the line claiming that Will was still married to her, and that they had 5 children together.  Slowly and surely Mary began to dig into Will’s past, and came to realise that her husband was not the man she thought she had married.  What she found out about Will Jordan shocked her to the core.

Can you really know another person?  Ladies, beware of good-looking, charming men who seem a little light in the wallet area, that’s all I can say.  Poor Mary had to learn this lesson the hard way.  I must admit I probably would have been suspicious much sooner, but then again I never met him thankfully.

It’s my own 37th wedding anniversary today.  Most couples have problems somewhere along the line and we have certainly had ours, but I know I have a good man in Sam.  Ms Turner Thompson was taken in by a practised liar and by somebody who has absolutely no morals or decency.  I only hope that she eventually finds a partner who can restore her faith in human nature.
