The author came across a set of letters and journals which intrigued him in relation to the writers. He, therefore, investigated and explored the lives of Myra & William Sykes.
The author explores more than just the lives of Myra & William but also of life in the 1800s including the law and thoughts of people in that era which brought the separation of Myra & William.
It was really an interesting read in respect of how different life was back then. Whilst the author managed to track down some facts, a lot more will remain a mystery.
