My parents and I at the house near Lake Balaton before they left in 1969. This photo was the inspiration for the cover art by artist Nancy Nimoy.

A typical picture of my grandmother doing laundry in a tin tub in the backyard. That's me with my dog, Blind Crow. There is a whole chapter about him!

This is a picture of me and my mom on Lake Balaton, taken shortly before they left.  I treasure this picture. It was proof that she loved me and leaving me must have been the hardest thing she ever did.
