Hey! Forever here with a review!!
I haven't read the story "The town of Richardson" so, I will be focusing on this one only.
She lived happily with her husband,Lucas and her son,William.
You see,one would think she was happily married,but that is not the case.
These two lines feel contradictory. Like one moment you were saying she was happy and the other moment you were saying that she was not happy. Stick to one. As the latter part of the story justifies the fact that she was actually unhappy, it's better to remove that first part ehere it says that she was happy.
I wonder about the Lucas. He doesn't really seem to be very normal person. Like he was frustrated and we can see that from the story but why he literally killed them and did so many evil things? To me, Lucas kind of seems like psychotic and I wonder why the others, William and Isabella didn't understand it. Now, if he was not a psychotic, he definitely had a very evil business behind that circus and that might also be the reason why he didn't like William helping him. He feared that his surreptitious business would be exposed. I wonder about what it really was.
Now to Isabella. She seems to be a good person. Keeping faith in such a person seems to be really hard but still she kept her hope alive. Sad that it died later and obviously, she too died. Death of a good woman. We don't know much about William but he too seems to be a good pwrson judging from the fact ghat he wanted to help his father in his work. I wonder if he died too. Maybe he died or maybe he didn't.
The story seemed to be a very fast recapitulation of all the past that happened. Maybe it's something like a prologue to that story where Isabella along with William plans to kill or at least pain Lucas. The ending was quite a good one that left the readers thinking about the fate of Lucas and if William is actually dead.
