    A Letter from Marie

    The whole novel is written from Aimée's perspective, and, being dead, Marie can't really speak for herself. But what if she sent you a letter from New Orleans before she died in 1898? You might find out details that are not in the book. This hand-written missive can work as an extra chapter - a secret one only you have access to.
