    Summary

    The year is 1850. Thomas Jopson has been back home in England for 3 years after a treacherous journey across the Arctic which lasted an equally long 3 years. Since his return, life went relatively back to what it had been before he left with a steady job helping his father run his father’s tailoring shop in Gee Street.

    It is an honest and good life. So he does not really know why, after this long stretch of time, he shows up on the doorstep of his previous navel captain’s doorstep. At least, that’s what he tells himself.

    Summary

    “We… found you out by Lake Franklin, on the rocks,” Goodsir began, halting. “Sprawled there, all but dying. Your body was shutting down. None of us knew who put you there or why you might have arrived. Dr McDonald and I have been working to stabilise you.”

    “McDonald,” James repeated. Once more, his judgement of the situation veered toward his own afterlife - - McDonald had died during the Carnivale fire. “I - I died, then? This is - Hell, or Heaven, or some such afterlife?”

    Goodsir stared at him.

    “I don’t quite think so, sir,” he said. “As I said, this town - it’s for… er, unworldly things, I should suppose you might say. Things that might make men uncomfortable, should they know they roomed with us. It’s safer for us here, out of the way.”

    or: Life after death is not a foreign concept to James - but he'd not been expecting this. Struck with the knowledge he's been placed into a different time, James finds himself unable to escape the Expedition in a new way - each face he meets in town is one he greeted on the ships in 1845, and some of them seem awfully interested in seeing history repeat itself.

    Summary

    “You’ll be paired up with Edward Little, bass player for the power metal band Terror.

    On the suggestion of a friend (and after a night of morose drinking), former corps de ballet and principal dancer Thomas Jopson throws his lot in on the reality competition show Dance of a Lifetime. To his surprise, not only is he accepted, but he's paired with a man he's never heard of: Edward Little, critically acclaimed bassist for the equally acclaimed power metal band Terror.

    At best Thomas is expecting long hair, tattoos, uncontrollable body odour, and maybe for Edward Little to have a decent sense of where to put his feet if they’re both lucky. At worst, a temperamental rockstar’s refusal to take anything seriously may result in Thomas' career and reputation going up in flames.

    He isn’t expecting the surprisingly mild, thoughtful man behind the guitar, however, and in the end Edward Little and his sad, tired eyes might be all it takes to throw all Thomas’ rigid, best laid plans right out the window.

    Summary

    — Моё сердце в обмен на сердце мисс Крэкрофт, — объяснил Джеймс, заставляя свой голос звучать спокойно и уверенно, даже если ни спокойствия, ни уверенности он уже не чувствовал.
    Крозье продолжал на него смотреть и на его лице разыгрывалась буря. Яростная тишина царила между ещё минуту, но потом Джеймс добавил:
    — Вы… Едите сердца… Молодых и красивых…
    Взгляд волшебника Крозье стал жёстким и непреклонным. В воздухе вокруг них затрещали электрические разряды. Волосы на затылке Джеймса встали дыбом. Теперь он чувствовал ту чистую силу, что была заключена в этом человеке.
    — Ты ничего не знаешь.

    Summary

    Everyone lies down in the afternoon it seems like. To rest. It’s too hot for anything else.

    I came in through the patio door and saw he was naked. He asked me to remove my clothes too. We’ve spent the day around the water in the shade. There’s a pool here. The sun is hot.

    I obliged and stripped down for him. This room is separate from the rest of the house. Its own building really, and self-contained. Cooler too, I reckon. We can walk out the doors straight to the water. I’m not permitted to swim.

    Summary

    Just by looking at him Sophia could imagine what it might be like to know him better, or even to be the wife of such a man, because his presence was not so different than Francis’s: only his age and his station. Sophia felt her personal regard for status diminished further all the time.

    Summary

    ‘I know this is not how you would have chosen to spend a week, Miss Cracroft—Sophia,’ Anne says softly. ‘Minding someone else’s wife because she cannot bear to be alone—well! I am sorry,’ she says, looking Sophia in the eyes. ‘But I do hope that we shall get along well together, and that you will feel yourself at home here, even a little.’ She hesitates, and then adds, ‘I should like very much for us to be friends.’

    Summary

    "Tell your friend Commander Fitzjames to come with us to the countryside," said Sophia.

    Francis blinked at her, turning away from the steaming pot. "He'll say no, of course. The man's avoiding me, as you well know."

    "He'll say yes to this."

    "And how do you know that?"

    "Because you'll insist," said Sophia.

    When Ned first sees him, he wishes he could compare him to something beautiful. How do you try your hand at poetry when your world is so small, constricted to a few white hallways and the ripple of sound waves on a monitor?

    Summary

    Tom, she thinks. She could write a whole play with his name alone. He would be embarrassed of it and hide his face in the front of her kirtle at its premiere and she would not make fun, because that is the very reason for writing a play of his name. Tom. Thomas. Tom. Thomas. Tom. Thomas. Tom.

    Summary

    It was a living, alright, the way Francis saw it, but it wasn’t a life. A life was made of something other than dry red dust and the dregs of a whiskey bottle. When he imagined his grandparents, who he had never met, he thought, That there must have been a life. What they had belonged to them: six children, twelve acres of green Ulster farmland, a body that joined you in slumber and rolled over to touch you in the morning.

    Texas, 1881. Francis Crozier is a cow boss who drinks to drown old hurts. James Fitzjames is a secretive city slicker from New York. Their paths cross at Coppermine Ranch.
