SO! Here it IS! The story I have been working for the last couple of months. This is the one that I wrote a good 15,000 (and the rest!) words as part of mini_nanowrimo
. You do NOT know how GOOD it feels to actually *share* this with you all.

Canon, tells 'one' version of his story; this simple tale tells 'one' version of hers.
When on a mission in Miami, her husband is 'fished' out of the cold waters of the harbour by an academic, Magda's life is upended in ways that she could never have foreseen. It’s a meeting puts her on a course with an adventure that will take all her courage, intellect, wit and most of all her humanity to see through to it’s end.Dramatis Personae of some of the characters in this story
