Nicki Adams worked as a teacher of French and German and a senior manager in education. Her ex-husband suffered from acute paranoid schizophrenia. She is now divorced and lives in London with her son. Her daughter and granddaughters are also closely involved in her life.
Set in London between 1973 and 1983, Adrift is a compelling true story portraying the way a husband's mental illness tragically destroys a happy marriage. It examines the agonising dilemma faced by his wife struggling to make sense of his baffling condition yet concerned for their young children and her own safety.
