I did not cre for this book At times it was a little difficult to get through and at others it was almost impossible When I finished this afternoon I was relieved to be done with it The chapters that contain letters back and forth are all to common and nothing about them separate's them from other books with the same type of letters in them A lesson learned Poor Clara waited for her love her step brother who came home from the war mentally damaged The revelation that Henry made to Clara that he aided Booth's attack on Lincoln only furthered my dislike for the book At the end of the story saying that she was merely his sister Henry locked away in an asylum merely goes about day to day as though nothing happened that he did not kill his wife his step sister the mother of his three children
