    Summary

    The return of the Slate family to the village would not, in the normal way of things, have interested William. But then he heard that they had a Javanese ceremonial dagger, and, just then, William desperately needed a Javanese ceremonial dagger.

    That Honeysuckle Slate and his sister Ethel had a complicated past, and many feelings about meeting each other again after years apart, was not of interest to him. But in his quest for the dagger, it would become relevant indeed, and help him realise there was a bit more to his sister than he had thought.

    Could William secure his dagger and sort out his sister's reunion? William certainly thought so...

    Summary

    "There was not a single soul still living who had ever seen Benvolio for what he was. No one was left who knew what he looked like naked, exposed, laid bare. He’d given up confessing the sins written in the Bible and his dreams years and years ago – no more quiet words reluctantly given over to the priest about men and the way he saw men and the way he thought about men – and now the men who’d had him were dead, and no one knew his truths but God himself.
    Then again, Verona had burned like Sodom and Gomorrah, so maybe God was witness enough to damn him after all."

    Benvolio is more lost than any of them realize, and Verona is no place for a lost soul.

    Summary

    They say, then and later, that madness and magic come in the month of Boedromion. The sea cooks and boils. The air singes and curls. In the nights, gods walk the earth beside men. The fair-haired goddess, laughter-loving Aphrodite, comes to her then, sitting in the courtyard, weaving with her hands as her mind flies free.
