The Legacy of Lorna Lovelost by Gary William Murning

Written in a straightforward, no-nonsense way, The Legacy of Lorna Lovelost is a uniquely poignant documentary of life at its most vulnerable.

Detailing the last moments of Lorna Lovelost from just prior to her diagnosis, this novel explores different philosophical views about life, the passage of time, having faith in yourself, and most of all, about hope. Surprisingly, this book does deliver on the statement that it provides permission to hope. 

Terribly insightful and causing more than a few tears, the story leaves the readers pondering on the meaning of life and its implications. Prose that mixes lesser-encountered words in unique combinations are an exercise in wordplay, yet create a rhythm that is unique and suits the reader’s need to stop and ponder on the revelations.

Worlds can end in many ways ... and begin in many more ... For Tobias and Lorna Lovelost, an unretracted retractable bollard marks a beginning-a beginning that will see them reunited with an old friend and embark on quests driven by the need to shape the worlds that will, sooner or later, be left behind. A novel that explores themes of loss and continuance, The Legacy of Lorna Lovelost, like its characters, never loses its sense of humour. A driven, passionate blend of wit and pathos, it will entertain, move and prompt that so often neglected question ... ... what will my legacy be?
