3 Works in Martha Wayles Jefferson/Dolley Madison
Ever since Philip woke up on the train with no memories, his thoughts have been a constant, desperate stream of fine, fine, fine, fine. He's lost and alone. He's fine. No one is human. He's fine. He might be headed somewhere to be killed. Fine, fine, fine. But when people actually start dropping dead around him, it becomes harder to deny his current state. Which is, of course, doomed.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
There's no random shooting into the dark anymore, every move is calculated and presice, no chance to miss. You can kill a revolutionary but you can never kill the revolution..
Alexander and Lafayette came from two entirely different worlds, but somehow, someway they both ended up in the same place: Homeless, alone in the streets of New York City, with nowhere left to run but to each other. They say the strongest bonds are made to those you go through the worst times with, and for them it had never been more true.
But life isn't easy on the streets, things can only go right for so long before they come crashing down again.
And when they do, Lafayette and Alex both find that their lives will never be the same again.
Or the story of how Alexander met Lafayette, and what happened to them before they had a home.
