SPOILER ALERT: If you enjoy fantasizing how characters look in books or want to be surprised on every page, then don’t look at these photos until you’ve finished reading the first quarter of the book. Otherwise, enjoy photos of my grandparents, parents, and me.
Cleft Heart characters and “found” objects
Intermixed with key characters are medical images: a hospital bill, a payment booklet, and a very simplified diagram of a lip and nostril repair.
Hospital charges and my parents payment booklet for the surgeon’s fees show what a “deal” surgery was back in the day. Not! The charges were truly hefty and required installment payments, just like a mortgage on a house.
Watch for future blogs where I’ll post additional collages for characters in the rest of the book.
