Tortured Hearts (A Love to Die For) – Leigh Oakly

In the aftermath of such a tragedy, everyone who knew Sophie is trying to get on with their lives in the best way they can. But there are too many conflicts, too many split loyalties and too much pain for any real relationships to flourish. Everyone is treading water, going through the motions and waiting…everyone is always just waiting. Then, just when things seem to be quietly moving in the right direction, the unthinkable happens. No-one is waiting now. They are all faced with reality and the havoc it is about to wreak on their relationships, on their alliances and on their futures. But reality is only what one believes to be true and no-one seems to think the same thing!

‘Tortured Hearts’ is part two of the Trilogy ‘A Love to Die For’

As an author I believe that love is its own master. Fighting to gain the unrequited love of the one person you want is mostly a futile battle. Even so, most people will continue to fight and to hope, because letting go of that person is an unbearable brand of pain.

I am a relatively new author to the publication of novels as this was something to which I never seemed to have time to devote, while working full-time in a very challenging role. My previous writing was restricted to competition short stories (with some pleasing success) and to script writing. My favourite scripts were bespoke Christmas pantomimes which I wrote for clients every spring/summer. My recent retirement has allowed me to pursue my goal in novel writing.
My first series 'A Love to Die For' was well received by readers some of whom are still asking for a forth part to the trilogy. I am in two minds about that at the moment!
My second series 'Precious Stones' was inspired by the old Eagles song 'Lyin' Eyes' but it is considerable darker than the song we used to sing along to I'm afraid.
I have taken part in some talks via zoom to several societies who have embraced my first series and in particular the residents of Filey on which the series was based. Some have told me that since they read the series they don't like walking along the Filey Brigg any more which I suppose, in some ways, is a compliment!
