When Melisande Fleming sees that Jasper is being thrown over on his wedding day — and for a curate, if it can be believed — she seizes her chance with both hands and hangs on for dear life. She knows that Jasper has never taken much notice of her beyond what politeness demands but she stiffens her spine, sneaks off to the church vestry and proposes to him. Not as she loves him. And so begins a marriage of convenience that quickly becomes more as 1 Melisande watches Jasper try and discover who betrayed his regiment to the enemy deep in the primeval forests of North America during the late war and 2 Jasper begins to see the depths of this quiet wife who only wears drab dresses and hides her feelings better than he does.
As Munroe tells Jasper, Melisande has courage. And as one of the few survivors of the torture inflicted on them by the Indians, he ought to know. She sees the way he deals with the nightmares that still haunt him and makes no comments — only joins him in the rituals he needs in order to live through each dark night. Jasper falls in love with her as she is, as she looks, as she dresses and as she acts.
It takes Jasper a long time to truly begin looking at Melisande as his early nice, but basically useless, present shows her. The plot is mainly a character study of Jasper and Melisande. The continuing arc of who betrayed the 28th Regiment is there but it mainly throws light on these two as Jasper continues his dogged search for the traitor.
I still have a few doubts about these men being held for ransom, and how that was conveyed to the British authorities and how they got the remaining men away from the Indians. Share this:.
