world around him as a historian would, with a need for grounding, for evidence, and an aversion to allowing just any story to come out Yet he also sees the world through the grimy lens of his daguerreotype, distorted by loss and grief Haunted by his past and present, and unable to create a story from either, he must nevertheless transcribe the story of the late Ada, wife of the famous and also late poet Hugh de Bonne But in the telling and transcribing of Ada s story it s soon apparent that nothing is quite what it seems Every perspective is a different story, and every story is a
