It started with a Kiss in the magical land of Cornwall by Judith Lea and Philip Elliott


A true life book about two individuals who were both in committed relationships with other partners. It is a story of how they ended up in Cornwall, how they eventually met, manoeuvred their way through those relationships, fell in love and began a new life together.

The Puppet Master facilitated the coming together of the incongruous couple and surprisingly there was attraction. As their lives became more entwined, subliminally the chemistry that existed between them became all consuming. Neither were looking for a new relationship, but destiny had other ideas, and platonic meetings became trysts.

With a leap of faith the trysts blossomed into a new blended family living in a tiny two up, two down house. Sprinkle into the cauldron; two teenagers, four GSD’s (German Shepherd Dogs), naked adventures, death defying sailing, a brother with a secret, family availing themselves of free holidays, ostriches, helicopters, explosions at work, a film premiere, parties, fireworks, schizophrenia, drug addiction and a smidgen of Cornish history: two normal people living a normal life!

Told with humour, honesty and candour, Judith and Philip’s autobiography is jointly narrated, presenting two contrasting viewpoints and chronicles their story of destiny, love, heartbreak and relinquishment.
