I came out here in search of love and happiness. I found instead, a machine. A machine of cold steel. As cold as the instruments you use to probe into the bodies of unconscious patients on operating tables. Nursing hadn't changed me from a woman. But surgery and the tropics had changed the man I came to marry. So, I turned to Hugh Dawltry for the love and affection you didn't give me.
