Navigating the different memories this present day excavation unearths Lively is able to give us a true sense of how those who have devoted their lives to uncovering the truths of history—eg Paxton and also the young Tom engaged to Paxton’s aloof and emotionally traumatized daughter Kate—may know less than those who hav
