Written in the form of a diary, which genre was so popular in the 18th century and which sounds so comprehensible in our time of blogging, web-diaries and web-journals, the novella may be called a love story. A story of a 16-year-old damsel and her weird marriage. Time: 1764, a year after the Seven Years War (this first global military conflict took place much earlier than WWI, and it may be called the First World War, in fact.) Set in Europe, the story is historical fiction, in which Author studies the interesting case when a gay man is enforced to get married to a female (dynastic marriage) and what comes of this unnatural act. (Warning: no consensual sex, no sex relationship at all between the spouses.) Nothing playful,but the book is a story of a young thing, who learns the world. Nothing unworldly,but the mysterious and mighty undead, who appears in the winter tale of the novel Silver Thread Spinner, appears in this new story as well.
