The love story of Mary and Harry Bocker, their lives in Edinburgh. A true fictionalised story.

1952 EDINBURGH

Mama Bocker is on the far left, Mary stands in between her mother-in-law and her sister-in-law, . Harry puffs out his chest, "his women' are beside him, outside his home.

By this time, they have lived at number 76, for ten years.

 

 

MARY AND HARRY 1982

Mary and Harry, relaxed and happy in their friends' home in Lakenheath. Now Grandparents, they're happy with the title and happier to go to Spain!

 

 

Below is a short excerpt from Chapter 12

"Are you sure we can go in there, Harry", Mary asked worriedly. "I'm not so sure the priest will allow us, what happens if he finds out?'

Harry took Mary's hand firmly, but gently into his large, powerful hand, "Mary, do you trust me" he asked?

"Of course I do, you know I do" she said immediately.

"Then trust me now, the priest won't say a thing, come on, walk with me and let's see how the other half live."

Cathedral City is a novel written by Lisanne Valente and dedicated to her late parents, Harry and Mary Bocker. The book, although fictionalised, is based on their romance, leading to their marriage in 1942.

Writing the book was a very cathartic experience for Lisanne; through her research of their lives in Edinburgh. She was interested to discover them, as a young couple, what the endured, prior to the second world war.
