CHAPTER 1

Millie Dalton sank into the couch, staring at the blank the TV. She was lost in her own thoughts. Since she divorced her husband, she had been feeling down, and lonely. She couldn’t remember the last time she did anything for herself. Her family of four daughters and an often absent and usually drunk and abusive husband hadn’t been easy. But she’d made it through and kept her daughters safe. She had been able to raise all her children, with little help from her husband. Jeff Dalton left her for his secretary from his auto shop. Or that’s what he said. Millie didn’t know for sure and didn’t care anyway. Twenty-eight years married. That plus the courtship year of friendship, family, and, she’d thought, a happy life. Until it all fell apart.

Millie Dalton had just felt numb when she accidently discovered that her husband of those twenty nine years was cheating on her. Not the secretary as he had claimed. With a girl young enough to be his daughter. A girl he had just picked up in a bar and was taking to one of those by the hour motels. She remembered how she had confronted him. When she’d come across him while hurrying to meet a friend for coffee.

Really Jeff? Almost thirty years? All for this nonsense? She had said, almost tearing up.

I’m sorry Millie, I know this is stupid but I am really sorry Jeff had said. Sorry for being caught, maybe?

They had both shouted at each other. Lucky she thought that all their kids were all grown with their lastborn in college. The girl whoever she was, had taken off down the street.

You better have something more because sorry can’t fix this, Jeff! Millie had said, storming away. When Jeff had come home that evening, she left him standing in the lounge She’d flown into her bedroom and slammed the door.

You can sleep on the couch. Or the floor. On the footpath for all I care. You swine! Millie had yelled to him through the door. We’re over. I never want you back in this house ever again.

Jeff had left the house and gone to the bar where he met his secretary. Millie learned later that the foolish woman had believed that her husband was in love with her and planned on divorcing Millie to be with the secretary. The deluded woman, Millie had thought at the time. Her husband only ever thought about what he wanted. The rat just did not want Millie anymore. She remembered how she had cried for that man, for that mongrel she’d thought was hers. The father of their daughters.

When Jeff had finally said that he was in love with another woman, a sharp pain had cut through Millie’s chest and into her heart. She had dedicated her whole self to her family. She had agreed to marry him when she got pregnant with their first daughter, Constance when she was only sixteen. They’d had to wait until she reached the legal age to be married but she been so sure that Jeff was everything she had wanted.

The doorbell rang, interrupting her train of thoughts, thoughts that made her heart bleed all over again.

Hey, Mum. A voice from the front door. She had called her three
