Another Shannon Selin story this time from Commuter Lit, based on a historical incident in 1807 Montreal. As two of the comments rightly say:
I love all the historical details woven in without making it sound like a history text book. A vivid glimpse into a particular time and place.
Very interesting story. I had no idea this type of thing ever happened! Well imagined and well written — how it all played out. Love the period dialogue, especially lines like this: “I took the vow of matrimony 30 years ago and have never had occasion to repent my obligation.”
