In the tapestry of life the threads of fate twist and wind through the lives of those who wander the earth. Irony and humor, even sick humor, acts as mile markers to events and circumstance, that some feel, are hopeless or impossible. Making the impossible reality is how Helena Greenbelt chose to live and raise her children.
At the height of Richmond Virginia's high society before war threatened the blossoming Wild West, the Greenbelt family enjoyed a degree of respect and stability. In a loveless marriage Lt. Colonel Horace Greenbelt was desperate to assert his hold on his family by ripping them from their roots, hauling them to Richmond California.
The wilds of the West were not sufficient to grant Horace what he wanted. Another move, he felt, would ensure his place as head of the house. Richmond in Van Diemen's Land, later to become Tasmania, in the far reaches of Australia would be his saving grace.
"Forget Me Knot" is the journey through the tapestry of life, tugging on threads with abandon along the way.
