On the coast of Devonshire
The Manor ~ Ten Width, which Seth Braxton inherits is not far from Clovelly, a historic fishing village on the cost of Devonshire, England.
The streets are cobbled, and there is no car traffic. To tour Clovelly, you have to walk. Tumbling down a 400 foot cliff, there are age-old whitewashed cottages, gardens, and inns. What better place to be the nearby village to Ten Width than Clovelly?
Can you imagine spending a few nights at the Red Lion Hotel on the quay, taking in the sea air, and the tranquility of village life. I often wondered while writing Surrender the Wind, what it would be like to live in such a place, away from the hustle and bustle of life in Maryland.
I am not so fortunate as to have traveled to England to the locations in my novels. I can only dream and thank the Lord for the Internet. But I have explored all the places in my books near me, such as the Potomac River, Harper's Ferry, WV, Frederick, MD, Western Maryland, the Potomac River Walk, and Annapolis.
Have you traveled to the locations in your novels? Is there a place where you would love to visit from a favorite book?
