While this story was written about spring and the challenges the Cartwrights and others may have faced at the end of their long winters, it is filled with nuiances and insight into the character of the younger Cartwrights, Ben included.
As a fanfiction writer, believability has never been a problem for Adamant, and this story's twists, turns, and little bumps all fit into life in the late 1800s, a working ranch of the era, and three sons and their father working together to make it through nature's plan.
This one has earned my recommendation, for what its worth to other readers.Author's Response:
Thank you, Tracy, for this wonderful review. Athough my mind doesn't automatically go into prequel mode, I find I like writing about the young Cartwrights and for some reason, I felt they would work well in the "Seasons" challenge which I, too late, thought I could make a series. Oh, well. I appreciate your reomendation and I also appreciate that you took the time to read and review. Thanks.
