Harvey’s HUTCH

Philip was born in a small town in 1952, and growing up in England that was just recovering from the effects of WW11 created some nostalgic moments in his memory. Several decades later, Philip was able to go on a time travel using solid mirrors that appear in the air. It brought back stark realities of how life used to be during the years of innocence; his childhood friends and the experiences he had with Harvey their family pet rabbit, as well as other fond memories while growing up. All of which contrasted with the current situation of things as he moved from England to Armenia.

Characters in the book include Phil, Eric, Harvey (rabbit), Ian, Mrs. Dodd, Donald, Christine, Ann, Kenny, and Christopher etc.
