Sweet Auralie is the final book of the Sweet Lenora series. Unlike the other three books in the series, it's a full length novel rather than a novella. It begins where the last novella, All Things Returned, leaves off, with the hanging of Cyrus Abercrombie, hated former first mate on the Sweet Lenora. Anton Boudreaux narrates this part of the story--
“Will you attend?” Edward asked.
“I would not like to put Lenora through such an ordeal,” I answered. I should myself have liked to see Cyrus Abercrombie receive the justice he so richly deserved, but I did not hold with turning sober occasions into celebration.
“Aye. We shall stay home as well.” I wondered if Edward might have gone had he not wanted to protect his wife, Meifeng.
“You are quite right, ladies should not be subjected to such things. Perhaps no one should.”
