I read that there were timeline issues in Devil’s Honor. Why can’t you fix that?

Because they don’t exist.

In the prologue, “five years ago,” we’re in Greeley’s point of view but Merritt explicitly states that she’s twenty-two years old. And Greeley spends some time thinking about how he really, really doesn’t want her to leave him to go to law school.

I think the confusion arises from the fact Merritt went off to college at eighteen. She visited here and there, as you do, and then spent that crucial summer in Lagrange before law school. The five years she was gone were three years in law school, then two more years in New York City working in that firm.

The timeline works, I promise!
