SWEET EPITAPH

After Rachel Hart spends weeks of imprisonment in ""terror and forsakenness,"" she returns home to find that her adopted father (it is later revealed that he is also her secret husband) has died leaving all his money -- not that she minds -- to a young relative Jeremy. They behave so badly toward each other that you rightly suspect things will get better. There's a murder and an attack and finally dear father-husband Toby's hand, sticking right up out of the ground like a crocus. Can you imagine the ""ultimate horror,"" ""utter desolation,"" ""depths of my sorrow,"" ""in torment,"" ""utter mortification"" and ""torture of despair"" to follow in fifteen bereft lines?
