|Long Description||1919. When young Tilly Moran falls out with her elder sister, Alice, she decides it is time to fly the nest and moves from the family home in Chester across the Mersey to Liverpool. Always more determined and spirited than her staid sibling, Tilly is undaunted by the prospect of living alone. By a stroke of luck, Tilly strikes up a friendship with Wendy Wright, whose mother has a room to rent. Though the lodgings are not expensive, Tilly can scarcely support herself on the income from her fledgling writing career and so she takes on two part-time jobs in the hope that they will not only supply her with some much-needed money, but also inspiration for her novel.Her undercover work on behalf of Grant Simpson's detective agency and the Seamans' Orphanage brings her into contact with the criminal elements of Liverpool society and desperate families trying to cope with the loss of their menfolk in the Great War. But as she throws herself into her role of detective, Tilly uncovers rather more than she bargained for. There seems to be little time for romance in such a climate, but soon Tilly finds she has attracted the attention of not one but two admirers: her employer Grant, and the charming and wealthy Lenny Parker. Though she is flattered, Tilly can never quite forget Don, the American photo journalist she met the previous year. And it is only when her life is put in danger that she discovers where her heart truly lies. This is a beautifully eloquent and heartfelt tale of a young woman's search for independence and love in post-war Liverpool.|

QR Codes are a type of 2 dimentional (2D) barcode that are commonly used in advertising and supported by most smart phones. These compact codes can make it very easy to get digital data from print into a computer or smart phone.
Originally created for the automotive industry, these codes have exploded into use in print on business cards, in magazines and even seen on web sites. This is because of the increased access to smart phones that can easily scan these codes and transfer the data to the user.
There are a number of uses for these codes. Web links, contact information (vCard) and other useful types of information. Here is an example of a QR Code that you can scan.
The large square patterns you see in three corners of the image are used for positioning. The smaller box you can see in the lower right portion of the image is used for alignment. Connecting the positioning blocks are a series of timing blocks which always alternate light/dark (0/1).This allows the scanning device to recognize and scan regardless of how the pattern is oriented. To make this easier to identify, here is a colored version of the same QR Code with the positioning blocks marked in red, the alignment block is marked in yellow and the timing marks are marked in green.
There are also sections for versioning and formatting which are kept around the positioning blocks. In the image below, the formatting blocks are marked in red and the versioning blocks are marked in yellow.
The remaining blocks make up the content information and associated error correction data. As the amount of data grows, more alignment markers are inserted into the image. It is important to print the image in a large enough size. If the image is too small or too dense, scanners could have trouble reading the data back.
If you would like to create your own QR Codes, there are several web sites that let you do this. We actually have our own QR Code generator on this site where you can create your very own QR Codes for any use you like and it is totally FREE!
