Harris Wimberly is widowed. Time has passed, and yet he cannot envision himself with another woman. Not that he loves being alone. He would love to find love again. But how? How would he ever meet the right woman? How would he know the right woman should he meet her?
Anna Forth is also widowed. With a busy pediatric practice and a thirteen-year-old son, the chances of her having the time to find new love seems far fetched. Not that that eases the loneliness she feels. She wants to be a wife again. Her son does need a dad. But how would she ever find the right man to be the husband she needs, and the father figure her son needs?
Harris and Anna live in a world which is not ours. Both are It is a world of steam powered cars, lories, trains, and even outrageous flying machines including lighter than air Zeppelin dirigibles and airships. Clothing styles remind us of Victorian era dress, and goggles and top hats, leather and brass accessories, and gears and clocks. The geography of the land is not the same as ours, for cities with names which we do recognize, are not the cities we know in our world.
Notwithstanding the differences between our worlds, the human heart knows all of the other common emotions which are the same way regardless of the world it lives in. The loss of a loved one, especially a spouse through death, brings the same heartbreak, and new love found brings joy just the same in both worlds. The worlds we live in may be different, but the need for love is the same.
The story was inspired by my own experience. Widowed after fifty years of marriage, I knew that I was not meant to spend the rest of my life alone. God sent a wonderful godly widow my way. We've been married three and a half years.
Having told our story many times I was challenged to write a book telling our story. Not wanting to do so in memoir form, much preferring fiction, the book 'A Ship Called Abigail' came to be. Though we do not feature in the story, the story is very much about us and how God brought us together.
The book is Christian in theme. But I intended it to not be preachy or denominational.
And two sequels have come from the book. 'Voyage of Abigail' and 'When Love Finds Hannah'. A third sequel 'An Empty Quiet Place' is currently being written.
