A favorite spot on Wolfe Island.

"Eight lamps sat across the ornate desk, casting a yellow-orange glow in the shadowed recess of the long room. When in full operation, each bulb threw light upon the face of a hotel staff stationed and waiting to welcome arriving guests. Bell boys with short jackets and tiny hats buckled beneath their chins had been hired to load the large state-of-the-art freight elevator with luggage dollies destined for the floors above."

The Pier. Ostend, Belgium. 1895. "Chloe felt faint. Her face tingled with cold sparks. She sat down on a footstool. She was going to Ostend. To see her grandmother. And they were leaving for the city tonight. This very evening. And she would be going with Simon. This man. Her mind flashed with the image of his hands separating her thighs. Her husband. 'I didn’t have a chance to tell you. I would like to take you home.'" (Swann Bay, GiuliaTorre.com, 2015).

I found Meredith. Caitriona Balfe from Outlander. That works fine by me. Wolfe Island. giuliatorre.com/books

Climbing the hull of the Onoko to attend Meredith and Wolfe's wedding. "Simon had climbed riggings two times as tall as the hull, and that was on a narrow stick. But he’d never had to make the climb in another’s skirts. Chloe was terrified. He felt it. He pressed against her as she climbed, and she vibrated with it." (c. Giulia Torre, Swann Bay)

Meredith Wells is an accomplished botanical illustrator of an upstate New York island region’s native plants. The return of her erstwhile friend Tristan Wolfe brings intimate memories to the surface, and with them an expansion of her artistic repertoire. Wolfe and Meredith’s reunion is a spectacle, but nothing compared to the accidental circulation of her anatomical studies. Of him. Cover Art Tracy Hetzel.
