About the Book

What happens when time yellowed photographs, discovered in the wall of a ramshackle Victorian charmer, begin talking to you? Would You listen? The fading snapshots were historic treasure that launched a 12 year journey into the past. The Victorian secrets of a trio of sea captain’s families, were lost behind that wall, shackled by time for generations. What were the chances of learning the names of the four children captured by the cameras lens, so many decades earlier? What was the likelihood of anyone in the photographs still being alive? And, if so, what were the odds of tracking down any of the nameless faces hidden until now, behind that wall? There are answers to these questions, caught a literal heartbeat before they slipped out of reach, forever. It is real life as it happened, both then and now. (57-Vintage Photographs)
