Who hasn't experienced a riotous depression? I had a number of people scratch their heads at this, but the more drunk people are, the louder they get, and any emotion becomes amplified.

I'm a composer and vocal performer, so this is the only nod to my personal hobbies in the book. =)

Mustaches were NOT popular for this time period, but what teenage boy (who can finally grow facial hair) DOESN'T try to grow something?

Originally, Alexia did not make the connection that her father knew this man, and it came as much more of a shock later in the book.

Mother has always been short with Alexia, but this moment, as the girl is changing is particularly difficult. She is perhaps less restrained with her daughter than normal because of the appearance of the blue eyed man, on top of Alexia changes.

I LOVE this moment. It captures my heart even now--that first meeting where she's shamed of her appearance, where he scares her completely, where time thins.
