Lady of Ashes

By:Christine Trent

External Conflict:Lady of Ashes focuses on how Violet is up against the murderer, thereby creating a ‘character vs. character’ conflict. Violet is also pivoted against Graham, who is going slightly insane over trying to 'destroy' America.

Plot Back in 1861, in Victorian London, Violet Morgan and her husband Graham Morgan, ran ‘Morgan Undertaking’. Violet had an undying passion for their business, it was something she was phenomenal at. One calamitous day, Violet and a young girl named Susanna were caught in a dire train crash, and Violet took Susanna under her wing. On yet another fateful day, Fletcher, Graham’s brother, found a way to sell the American Confederacy weapons, and Violet was suddenly thrust into Mr. Harper, a character whose intent was to apprehend the brothers. However, Violet had something much more important to attend to- all of her corpse clients had been poisoned.

CharactersViolet Morgan never was very good at keeping up a household, no, she perferred dressing corpses to hiring servants.In Victorian England, Mrs. Morgan was unheard of. Nonetheless,Violet's curious spirit and unyielding passion for her company would be what saves them all.
