An Unplanned Encounter : Jonathan R. HusbandAn Unplanned Encounter, Two Lives Forever Changed

The new historical fiction book “An Unplanned Encounter, Two Lives Forever Changed” by Jonathan R. Husband is based on true events. In the book a young British woman Mary Louise struggles for self-respect and safety in the aftermath of a sexual attack. The assault is instigated by the lodger living with her parents who is in charge of constructing a nearby bomber airfield during 1943 in the North of England. When Mary Louise learns she is pregnant, she fights to keep the child and raise him alone.

For thirty years the aftershock of that terrifying night continues to shake her world and that of the protagonist. With ordinary lives thrown into chaos, complex human relations run rampant. In her fierce determination to survive and thrive, Mary Louise will discover just how strong she is. The father of her son will discover that he can physically walk away from the situation he has created, but that the circumstances will haunt him for the remainder of his life.

Using carefully researched historic backcloths to the story from the 1940’s to the early 1970’s in England and California, the novel delivers inspiring and thought-provoking insights into a woman’s right to choose, how non-consensual actions can have consequences that can last a lifetime, how advances in medical science have changed lives, and how the bombing strategy of German-occupied Europe during World War II has its parallels today. An exceptionally well written and original novel, it is hard to believe that this book is only the first one written by Jonathan R. Husband.
