Penning a sequel to her story in “Montego May,” author Lilly May narrates her new beginning in 1962, as she marries an English soldier she met in Jamaica. This memoir follows their adventures “Forward Together” (published by AuthorHouse UK).

Gone were the anxious and pain-filled years of May’s childhood and teens. She tells a new chapter in her life after her marriage to Michael — the experiences she had as an army wife traveling to different countries, the hardships of raising three small children and moving as a military family, and how she settled into civilian life.

From the ‘60s to the present, “Forward Together” offers a candid look at May’s life, both the trials and the triumphs, as she and her husband now travel and enjoy their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

“There definitely no other book like this one. [There are] plenty of mixed marriages, but going through what my husband and I did is definitely unique,” May says. “[The book is] a history for our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.”
