Near the grave of Will’s father

This image of Arlington is close to what I had in mind for my protagonist’s final scene in Chapter 1.  Of course, there would be fewer graves in a local cemetery.  For those who have read the sample chapters, you’ll recall that Will broke his routine of visiting on Memorial day, going early on a rain-soaked Easter, possibly to seek advice.  So the novel opens at the same time of year we’re currently in, but during a particularly wet Spring.  As in most Romantic works, the summer will be hotter than average, the Fall more bittersweet, and the winter colder.

A moment for all those departed, who served the cause of right, as it is given any of us to see it.
