Ooh ! I thought when I saw this one. Our family has never really done 'Valentine's Day'.
I have no-one named Valentine and no-one was born or married on that day. What can I come up with ???
I started to think what the celebration is all about and thought well really it's a chance for people to express how they feel to the love of their life.
Then I thought I think I have a love letter between ancestors - but you guessed it - I couldn't find it :(
So stretching my mind further I thought I could tell a story about my parents meeting - the first flicker of love which lasted until they died. It is historical fiction, so it has facts in it but I have woven them into a little tapestry of their own.
