   Locations in The Second Coming of Angela

Take a tour of Brazil, the primary location for this novel, from Sao Paulo to the Amazon.

When I started writing this novel, it was 2005 and one of the locations in the story was a treetop hotel in the Amazon, Ariau Towers, on the Rio Negro (Black River) a feeder to the Amazon River.  I learned, about three years ago that it had gone out of business and my hope to see it someday was gone. I decided not to replace it in the book with another location. Couldn't bring myself to do it. When you look at the following links, you might understand why it was a dream I did not enjoy letting go of.

The novel has its beginning in a small town in the beautiful Muskokas in Ontario. No big city hustle and bustle but some of the most beautiful country you'll find.
