Death & the Maidens

What do you get when you mix one of the great freethinkers of his age with a conniving and histrionic 2nd wife, five children (each with different fathers near the turn of the 19th century), penury, plus a heavy does of literary genius? The correct answer is a fine mess, and a young woman who paid with her life for being stuck in the middle of it. For a few more details, visit Death & the Maidens at my blog.
