Simon. Fans of the Bess Crawford series by Charles Todd are those readers most likely to enjoy the backstory contained in a novella titled, A Hanging at Dawn. Set mostly in India when Bess was a child, we find out about how the Crawford family first met recurring character Simon Brandon. The events of this story are the pivotal ones that bound Simon to the family and knowing that context now explains much about what we already know happened after the events in India.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
