This story was both realistic and frightening all at the same time. It's an excellent writer that can make their readers feel what the characters are feeling, and you've been able to do just that, Sharry. I found even I was scared with the description of the wolves.
Of course, Joe would be scared to death because of his previous incident with a wolf, and you delved into his emotions very well. But I think what I loved best is how his brothers rallied around to protect him, even when Joe insisted that he was all right. True brotherly bonding at its best.
Hi, LJN. I'm sorry that I've been so delayed in responding to your review. Life has had me in a veritable tail spin for the last few weeks, yet I hope to catch up soon.
It's always gratifying to learn someone enjoyed reading anything that I've written. I think wolves would likely always be a particularly touchy subject for the Cartwright family after that one deadly experience - especially Joe. Anything that threatens Joe is a matter of concern for Adam and Hoss as well. The bond they all share protects all of them equally well. Whoever is in need of help can depend on his brothers to have his back. We both know they would all do that.
Thank you for reading. :)
