Anne notes that she views churches as symbolic markers of “humanity, of time, of life” (38). She feels the same about cemeteries and books.

The fog that is in place over Lough Gill each time Anne moves from one time to another is symbolic of mystery and the unknown. The same fog is present when Thomas arrives in 2001 from 1921.
