What you need to know before your trail

Willow’s memories of her parents are good ones. Days of sunshine and laughter. But a mysterious invitation to a photographic exhibition exposes a secret that’s been buried since a tragic accident years ago.

Willow is forced to question everything she knew about Charity, her late mother, and Hope, the aunt she’s lived with since she was a child.

What about the enigmatic photographer connected to Willow’s parents? Why will Hope not talk about it?

When everything you’ve known and loved comes under question – who can you really trust?

Travel Guide

Submerged forests

A submerged forest is exactly what you imagine it to be –  remains of trees that lie submerged beneath a body of water. A forest which has been submerged for whatever reasons such as rise in water levels or changes resulting from a dam for example. Some reappear whereas others are permanently submerged. There are many of these around the world – all are pretty spectacular and often companies will offer divers the chance to explore.

Tracy’s take on these is fascinating:

When waves crashed on the sea-shore with thunder in its wake. The Bells of Cntre’r Gwaelod   Are silent  ‘neth the wave”
These forests are described by the characters as being kind of like Atlantis …minus the buildings. “An they’re not just beneath the sea. You can find them in lakes and rivers too.

“There’s one in Austria that only appears in the summer when the snow melts. The water floods the trees, and even a park bench.”

More forests…..

Lake Bezid, Romania

Situated in Romania’s Transylvania region, Lake Bezid hardly needs added reason to carry haunting connotations, but its appearance sure provides one.

Periyar Lake, India

Periyar Lake in the Indian state of Kerala is another sunken cemetery for trees whose putrefying trunks rise out of the water as if clawing for divine mercy.

Udawalawe Reservoir, Sri Lanka

The twisted, closely-packed boughs standing in Sri Lanka’s Udawalawe Reservoir are similar visual reminders of the extent of the forest cover that lay here before the construction of the dam
