A Woman's Perspective
10 December 2012 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Clint Frome loved his wife. They made promises to each other before he went to war. Then he got shot up, lost his memory, and finally returned home. He couldn't wait to see his wife and be reunited with her! What a reunion it would be!

But he'd been gone for years and his wife had been told he was dead. She grieved for awhile then moved on. Clint had nothing. The only thing he had to hang on to was revenge.

There were a couple issues with this. First of all, if Clint wasn't dead then half of his wife's things were his, right? The will was null and void because he was still alive...

Second, there's no mention of the morality of Clint's wife and her "husband" not being legally married. If Clint was still alive then he and Lydia would still be married, which means that morally speaking Garnie and Lydia could not live as man and wife. Yet this issue was overlooked - perhaps because of the sensitive matter...
