THE SCENT OF LILACS by Doug Allyn
A short comment about a story in the most recent EQMM:
"The Scent of Lilacs" is a beautiful and incredibly tragic story about a time in Missouri near the close of the Civil War.
This story had special meaning for me. I grew up in a Missouri border town burned as a part of the Jayhawker-Bushwacker skirmishes on the Missouri-Kansas border. Where I came from, those times are not forgotten.
