Shoemaker's Wife
Casting Nasturiums
In June of 1919, Casting Nasturtiums opens with Seth Wain coming home from the war, finally demobbed, and desperate to find out what happened to his best friend, Golshan Soltani.   Dilly is all for this, supporting Seth (and Golshan) as they figure out what their lives look like after the War. The way there has a few surprises for Dilly as well, rather pleasant ones.
