I recently visited my plaque in Midland, Ontario, erected by Project Bookmark Canada, which chose  my historical novel, The Queen of Unforgetting, as part of its literary highway, a huge honour. Little Lake Park, where the text of the plaque is also set, hasn't changed much in 30 years. Still blissfully green and quiet, it's a jewel, with a long narrow road winding through the park, and a homey take-out place specializing in fish and chips. There's a baseball diamond near the entrance, a new playground in the middle, and the Huronia Museum at the far end of the park. Part of my story takes place in the 1600s when the Jesuits arrived from France; I'm not sure the park looked any different then.
