#Ro-ManicMonday…Lover’S Leap

Sitting in my dad’s third floor apartment in downtown Hannibal,one of my favorite things is the  spectacular view.  From his window I get  a different  look at  the river. I Can watch tug boats working, speedboats zipping along, the riverboat running its tours, driftwood floating down the river and trains chugging along.

Each window I look through I get a different view . I can see how Mark Twain got his indpiration for Tom a Sawyer and  Huck Finn using such s lovely, quaint town. Forgive the extra mistakes please I’m having to work from my phone. There are caves here that are supposed to be  the caves that inspired the stories but they are long and narrow so I can’t walk th with my bad hip and claistrtphobia.

LOVER’S LEAP does have a tragic ran tic story.  The story is written by a man  named Aurthor O Garrison. He claims to have gotten the details from ‘sncient inscrptions and a birch bark manuscript”  according to the Hannibal Courrior Post’s Sesquintennial Edition.

The story is similar to ones I’m most towns with high cliffs . You can find the story here. http://www.hannibalparks.org/parks/lovers-leap/

It is quite a sad story. I find it hauntingly beautiful and whenever I visit the cliff and see the big birds hovering above I wonder if they are spirits of the lovers that lept.

Yes I realize I have an overactive imagination! I am a fiction romance writer what do you expect?

I adore this town and you will notice s similar one in my upcoming contemporary romance I hope to have out next year.

Do you have a story about a lover’s leap or old folk lore in your town?
