Crossword Genius

Willingly have a new life (4)


I believe the answer is:


'willingly' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'a new life' is the wordplay.
'a new' indicates an anagram.
'life' is an anagram of 'LIEF'.

'have' acts as a link.

(Another definition for lief that I've seen is " In old usage, gladly or willingly - file away".)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail and The Irish News.
