I would be grateful to any one who may have an answer. For years I have tried to find out the name of the story.
The story involves a husband and wife in the 1800’s (ish) who over time have come to hate each other. As it goes the husband goes to bar. (He leaves because he hired someone to kill his wife that night.) As he walks out of the bar he hears what he thinks in the door slamming behind him. It turns out to be a shot that "kills" him. He wakes up, his wife is there, and it's now the future. As they both killed or had killed each other their punishment was to always remain together.
That and "Back There" were in a book that my mother had, but I have been unable to find the book. Thanks again to anyone who can help me.
