After a rocky first meeting, Kane and Ellen meet again by chance on the banks of the Charles River. When Mr. A. and I first visited Boston years and years ago, it happened to be the day before July 4, and we were drawn out of our hotel room to follow the crowds to the river and one of the best fireworks displays I’ve ever seen. Things were quieter this time around, but they were just as perfect.
"And she had unexpectedly fallen in love with Boston—with its age and its history and its respect for its old buildings and spaces, and with the Charles drawing everyone to its banks every time the sun came out."
I got some closure recently. Several years ago, when I was writing Breathe, Mr. A. and I went to Boston so I could get some details on Kane and Ellen’s lives in that wonderful town.
I've always loved Boston—even the idea of it when I was young and in the UK. I respect that it’s one of the oldest cities in the country, despite its shocking waste of good tea. So I always wanted to visit, and it was a good place to set my first novel (and its sequels, sort of).
We visited years and years ago, but this time it was business.
