    Extract: Arch of Time

    When she was out and about, she took more notice of the men and women working on the roads and building sites. She watched them carefully, seeing how they measured everything, never rushing, always so focused.

    A woman who was foreman at one of these sites saw Lisi staring and had a chat with her, telling her about the different types of bricks and cement and how they made sure everything fitted neatly.

    Lisi had a million questions, but three or four had to do for the time being. Once again, she would have liked to tell what she was building, but the foreman probably wouldn’t have believed her. If you told someone you were building a magic arch in your bedroom they were bound not to believe you.

Book dedications have always intrigued me, but so far I’ve never seen a website dedication. Perhaps this is the first. As it says in The Last Garden, “So special, so loved, so missed.” This little dedication is For Ana.
