"What is a heart if not the ultimate clockwork?"

Abigail's young life was saved by the kindness of strangers: Schuyler Algernon, the man who found her collapsed on cold city streets, and Quinn Godspeed, the doctor who risked everything by breaking the law to keep her fragile heart beating.

As the truth about what she's become and her feelings for her savior overtake her, Abigail is forced to ask what constitutes life, living, and what dark secrets are contained within Godspeed's past and the walls of Schuyler's house.

Amazing story. Amazing atmosphere. I really like your writing style. Out of curiosity, in what time period does Godspeed take place? Sorry if you've already mentioned it  >.<

Actually, my friend's Grandfather died within days of his Beloved Wife and the official diagnosis was that he died of a broken heart! First and only time I have ever heard of this as a diagnosis!
