Eleven Miles South of Half Moon Bay

Eleven Miles South of Half Moon Bay is a shout of joy and a howl of grief. It is a single golden instant and all eternity. It is a story mundane as boys playing marbles yet vast as life and death. It is the story of two free spirits: cousins for a mortal moment, brothers forever.

i have only read the preview so far. i will be buying this book. i am however going to look for it in print. my family is from Half Moon Bay which is what i searched and how i found this book
. although i wasn't born until 74, and moved away in 79, i have always considered the area home. this is going to be a must read! i am looking forward to it. thank you for sharing your life. i am sorry for your loss.
