The Moment We Met archiveLiz and Alan know there's a powerful attraction the moment they meet. Is it love? Will it endure and grow? Will they find happiness at last? All the signs say yes. Their affection deepens over time. Alan loves Liz. Liz love Alan. They go from strength to strength. The future looks inviting and happy and full of promise. But then one day an incident, a silly nothing sort of incident begins to sow the seeds of doubt... This is not an ordinary modern love-story. It focuses on the horrific actions the lie hidden beneath the most attractive of personalities and the suffering their actions, cause to those nearest and dearest to them. It is the story of a woman's struggle for truth and justice in a confusing world of half-truths and denials.
