    Summary

    Rey has her own personal reasons for answering that anonymous bachelor's advertisement in the heart-and-hand mail-order bride catalog, but the respectable Mr. Brigadier General Benjamin Solo needn't find out such trifling details.

    (The big fat pack of lies Rey has to tell him about herself is besides the point. Anything is better than being a nobody.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. The 19th-century speech patterns are just right, and the prose is just gorgeous. In fewer than 4000 words, the story takes us through an emotional journey in a fashion that felt effortless to read but that I know must have taken a great deal of labor and care. Fabulous work from this gifted writer.

    Summary

    He's surprised by the amount of flowers at her grave.
    He shouldn't be, really. Although Karen didn't have friends - or at least, not many. Murdock. Nelson. Ellison. And he was her boss before anything else.
    He'd thought they'd been friends, too.
    I kissed her, he thinks, a little desperately. It had just been on the cheek but he had hesitated, stayed there for a moment with that heat and that floral warmth that somehow radiated from her even in the chill air, and that had meant something. He thought it had. He had thought that, perhaps, she understood – understood that he couldn’t give her everything he wanted to, that he wasn’t ready, but that maybe some day he could be. That if he could ever have an after, he would have –
    The thought is too painful to finish.
    -
    Karen Page is dead. Frank goes looking for her anyway.
