Here is the fictional clipping of the wedding from the Corydon Democrat:
Rebecca McKinley Marries Alastor Sinclair: Miss Rebecca McKinley and Alastor Sinclair were married on the evening of June second at the home of the groom. The bride was beautifully gowned in white lace and satin, trimmed with beads. Several friends were present. The groom remained with his bride one week before returning to his regiment. Mrs. Sinclair is expected to make their home at Mr. Sinclair’s Capitol Avenue house.
Anyone that followed the series knows that the wedding is also mentioned in Haunted (Spiritus Series, Book 2) when Becca examines her past life under the power of hypnosis.
Excerpt from Haunted:
"Becca?" I asked. "Can you hear me?"
"Yes," she whispered, so softly that I had to strain to hear her.
"So, where are you? When was the happiest time of your life?"
Even with her eyes closed, Becca’s face lit up and her lips curved into a smile. "June 2, 1862. My wedding day."
I stiffened in my chair, "What?"
"The day that I married Alastor Sinclair," she mumbled.
That was not the answer I was expecting.
I broke out in goose bumps and my skin went clammy. I couldn't believe that this was happening. It just wasn't possible. What could I possibly say or do after that?
Of course I had read studies about past life regression during hypnosis, but I never really believed that it was possible. It was one thing to entertain the notion of life after death, but even I had never taken the past life portion of this case seriously.
Was it possible that Becca was that engrossed with this delusion? Was she remembering a memory that she herself created? If I questioned her further, would it all fall apart once and for all? Would that be the thing that cured her or the thing that would send her over the edge?
"Tell me what you see," I requested.
"I see the flowers in my hand, white and damp. My mother cut them from the garden this morning," she whispered. "And they still smell of sunshine."
Becca smiled, almost glowing, "I see Alastor, and he is so handsome in his uniform. He's looking at me and I can see it in his face that I am beautiful."
"Alastor is alive?" I asked.
"Of course," she said. "Alastor has my hand and the minister is talking, but I'm not listening, I'm looking at Alastor and the way the sun coming through the windows shines in his eyes."
I was amazed by her level of detail, but I needed to separate her from the fantasy.
"Is your father there?" I asked.
Her brow furrowed, "Yes, and my mother as well."
I was stunned by the latest twist. In her fantasy, her mother was alive? How could that even be?
"Your mother?" I asked.
"Yes," Becca said with a smile. "She's crying, but I know that she's happy. She always wanted me to marry a good man like Alastor. I'm going to miss them when they leave."
"Your parents are leaving?” I asked, curious where her delusion was heading. “Where are they going?"
"Further north," Becca mumbled. "The war makes them nervous. They want me to go as well, but I want to be near Alastor while he's fighting."
As intriguing as this glimpse into her fantasy was, it provided no promise of a cure. I was still amazed by her level of detail, but it wasn’t getting us anywhere.
