Little Dead Nancy, Part Two

Part One

TW: Mentions of sexual assault.

‘Little Dead Nancy,

Sitting on the bench,

One eye long,

The wedding is over. It’s time for a little family get together.

The Snows are certainly not your average family. But they are loyal to one another, at least. Four stories of Snows, both old and new.

Bluebeard- Nicholas, the only Snow brother who has yet to find his soulmate. But at first you don’t succeed…

Family Reunion- Holly has nothing in common with her prissy cousin, Eliza Jane. Hopefully they can find some common ground when Holly comes to visit for a week.

In Mother’s Closet- There’s something in Bonnie’s closet, and Abraham will make sure it stays a secret.

Brother Dearest- Why was Margaret disowned by the Snows?
