The Lost and Forbidden Love
By: Peter Edwards
About the Book
A Lost and Forbidden Love is just such a tale richly told by a grandfather to his granddaughter. Each time they are together, this young girl eagerly waits to engage her grandfather’s memory and wisdom, his revelation of this noble story carrying its enigmatic past across many settings of time and place.
Truly, Grandpa’s narrative is alive with historical and cultural details bearing expectations that influence fates of stories anywhere, everywhere. We are privileged stowaways in the space of each encounter where these tender two are walking through their days, their merged stories the very tangible present and the elusive past, as threads all woven together.
As you read, Grandpa’s life’s path meanders through places that will make you glad you had a secret seat near the open fireplace in his every room!
