My story begins where most women hope theirs will end - with a big, white wedding. After all, isn't that how every good fairy tale finishes?
I thought so. And at 23 it seemed my 'happy ever after' was secure.
I'd met the man of my dreams whilst on a gap year in Australia. Less than a month later he proposed and I accepted. But within twelve months he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and though we were able to marry he died just three weeks later.
You'd never guess I was a widow at 23. I've learnt to hide it well. Because what choice do you have when you've lost the love of your life almost as soon as you found him? The way I saw it, there were only two options...
A) Dress in black, become a recluse and watch your wedding video on a loop
B) Decide falling in love again is out of the question and choose an easy, uncomplicated alternative - sex...
Funny, powerful, and painfully honest, WIFE, INTERRUPTED examines the complicated process of grieving - and proves that sometimes the most unthinkable things can be the most comforting
