What it lacked was good editing. The language, at times, was not nice.
I understood the story was probably situated in the 1800's, yet there were discrepancies.
Firstly, the F--- word was unused back then.
At one time in the story, it swung from the third person to the first person.
Betsy, the child, likely could have had cholera, however, to be the only human who was contagious (none others were mentioned) in the area, it would have been unlikely. Without modern day A.B.s and I.V. therapy that child would not have lived as long as the story implied. Once the body dehydrates from fluid loss, as with that disease, the B.P. falls and death follows quickly.
So...her illness should be changed to perhaps Consumption which later became known as Tuberculosis. THIS IS AN infectious disease so everyone caring for her would need to take precautions.
Towards the end, Samuel's dialogue became English rather than the western slang he had always used.
A good CORRECTION App tool to use is GRAMMARLY which can be downloaded for free. It attaches itself to Word for corrections.
"Samuel looked at Sandra as he reached for his arms to hold the hands of the woman he was going to be his wife."
