    Summary

    "And you will know what it is to lose… everyone you’ve ever loved."

    Sébastien le Livre was born in 1770. He died in 1812, aged 42, after being hung as a deserter from Napoléon Bonaparte's Grande Armée, shortly after the Battle of Berezina. He came back to life with a noose still around his neck and hung there for three days.

    This is the story of the 42 years leading to his first death and of how Sébastien le Livre became Booker, forger, soldier, mercenary - and traitor.

    Summary

    After Dad died, her pastor had said that grief was natural. That it would hurt for a while, and then it would become waves, washing over you until they petered out to a faint trickle. Grief only got further away, eventually leveling out— until another tide swept in. It never healed, grief wasn’t meant to heal.

    Her pastor said that that was where God’s guidance came in. That He would help ease Nile’s heart, and remember her Dad— his smile, his laugh, the sound of Marvin Gaye through the staticky radio, dancing with Mom on a random Tuesday before he shipped out again.

    She still remembered those things, so clearly.

    Nile paused in the street, taking a deep breath of the sea salt on the breeze. Now her whole life was something she grieved, it would get further away. What if she didn’t want it to fade? She'd rather miss them all forever than forget them. Like Andy had

    Summary

    “You’re talking about 200 years of history, Nile,” says Copley when she calls. “Do you really think you can fix that in six months?”

    “First off,” replies Nile, “I am not fixing anything. I’m not a damn therapist. This mess needs to be fixed because I don’t get an out. There’s not a world where I just fuck off to do my own thing. I could argue for a few years with my family, but well, Booker tried that and look where that’s got us.”

    “So you think this break will help?”

    Nile shrugs before remembering that Copley can’t see her. “Help or hurt, we aren’t working right now. Not as a team or a family. It’s one thing to realize that they missed a lot of what’s been going on with Booker, with what he’s been suffering from. It’s another to assume that knowing the past, changes the present. He still betrayed them. It’s messy. That’s the bottom line.”

     

    Or the story of found family coming together through accountability, forgiveness, a lot of therapy, and maybe a miracle or two.
