An epistolary story from the year 1880. Objecting strenuously to her father’s plans to marry her off to some dunderhead of a man not yet even of her acquaintance, Evelyn invents a time machine and sets forth in search of eras more progressive. When her contraption goes awry, her only hope of salvation lies in causality-altering correspondence with her brother Aubrey.
