Bottom right is an old photo of (r. to l.) my father, brother Ron, sister Anne, my mother, my father's sister Loretta, and my cousin Jacquie (my father's sister Berna's daughter), all seated on the running board of the car packed for summer vacation at Port Dover, Ontario, on Lake Erie, probably 1934.
Centre is a photo of my father's sister Eleanor and her husband, Tommy Weatherell, again, circa 1934.
The background is a photo I took of a visit to St. Patrick's Well and Bed, County Galway, Ireland, in May, 2000. That's a statue of St. Patrick (upper left) overlooking his domain.
If you read the novel, come back and read this Behind the Scenes information. You'll enjoy it even more.
