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