The Setting

If you've seen the youtube video, you already know this stuff.
If you haven't and don't feel like reading all this,
click the link and save yourself some time and reading.

The majority of the story occurs at the secluded country home of Abraham and Giovanni, but there are a few other places worth mentioning. In the beginning, Mira starts out at her home in Chicago. Later in the story we learn that Abraham his from New Jersey and that he and Giovanni lived there for a short while together. Part of the story also takes place back in time, to a non-specific village in the ‘old world’. Then on top of all that, the reader even gets to visit the edge of heaven.

Abraham and Giovanni’s secluded country home exists in a made up Virginian town called Whitteltown. Whitteltown is the epitome of small town America, complete with superstitious and nosy neighbors.  Their home is actually a large estate located that the end of town, off into the wilderness. The house and the surrounding acres of land where they live is called, Sinclair Manor. While this name is not something I made up, I used it simply because I liked the sound of it.

Sinclair Manor beckons to the image of an English aristocratic estate, complete with several beautiful lavish gardens and a large stately house at the center of it all. It is a very quiet, secretive, and almost magical place. The house itself is almost another character, on its own.

The reader learns that the house has quite a unique history and that it has been renovated many times to ultimately become a place that Giovanni would never want to leave, unless he just wanted to. The house serves as refuge or semi-utopia for the difficult and complicated lives that Giovanni and Abraham have lived. -Day 12 complete.
