Here are a few pictures from the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife. The island, the village of Taganana, and the beach below Taganana feature heavily in PERILOUS, the final book in the Ripple series. I wanted you to be able to picture it when you read the book. It was such a privilege to visit this beautiful place. **The large mouse does not feature at all in the story.

The approach, on a narrow road.

The beach below Taganana, where Katrin lay.

Terraced gardening near Taganana.

View from atop the island, looking toward the fateful volcano in the story.

Chilling with the big mouse after our day on Tenerife!
