The Flower Cart and the Road
Asher, part Cherokee and part Jewish, was born in Tennessee to parents who wanted only the best for him; that is, to marry a nice Jewish girl and settle down to a secure life. Asher had other ideas. He wanted freedom. He thumbed to Florida, where he drifted along doing odd jobs and discovered his talent for painting.
He decided to try life in Europe and ended up in Germany, where he met his future wife. They were both targeted by local Neo-Nazis, who defaced Asher's painting and theatened their lives. With the help of one-eyed Jack, Asher retaliated, but suffered the consequences, including having to live in hiding.
He finally settled down to family life in Scotland. When one-eyed Jack followed him there and threatened his family, Asher decided enough was enough. He had no other choice. The windswept cliffs would keep his secret forever.
