The setting in Let The Shadows Fall Behind You

Here is the oil painting Evening Tide that my husband and I purchased at a charity fundraiser last week. It’s painted by artist Helga Lobb who moved to Canada from Germany in 1967.  She took several photographs of the coast and then collaged her impressions. My husband and I have often traveled along the Atlantic on the motorcycle at dusk.  I’ve seen the light assume this ghostly ethereal appearance.  Whether I like it or not, it’s the setting that enters all of my fiction: the river I live beside and the ocean it runs into.  The fundy coast is the back drop in Let The Shadows Fall Behind You.
