It spans 4 generations, 4 families, 1 funeral, rural and urban properties and mindsets, white-collar crime, coincidences, and serendipitous discoveries.
I find inspiration and motivation to stay the course for the ‘big books’ goals from the reflections of many great authors, including Baroness Karen Blixen, Danish Author 1886-1962
