FICTION

 

The twenty-one scenes here are fictional. Although based on real names in the Whyte family history, real places & documented history the stories and characterisations in them are entirely figments of my imagination. These scenes have however allowed me to make use of research material developed while preparing my family history and writing them has been fun.
