High Tide

The inlet at Sunnycove, Leap, so beautiful Ophelia herself could have lain here, provides the setting for my short story High Tide.

All fiction is largely autobiographical, someone said. I don't know if I agree, but in this case, it's true: High Tide is based on my great-grandmother, Ellen O'Donovan, and set in her house and garden, Sunnycove. I wonder if she'd approve...
