I'm really enjoying the Crucible WHN's here in the Boomers library and this is no exception. Love the strong family bond in this - so important! You really portrayed the love between them, which I appreciate very much. Nice job!
I really liked this story. Nice writing. Couldn't put it down.
Love the detail you put into this.
Everyone's take on the post-Crucible story is different, and you've done a good job with yours! I appreciate that the physical repercussions for Adam aren't made light of or passed over hastily; dehydration, heatstroke, etc. are seriously dangerous and take recovery time. I also like seeing the Cartwrights pull together during hard times.
And Joe's poker-playing finally comes in handy! I'm glad he got the money back!
Enjoyed this story. I feel you have left this ending opened for another
story Hoping that you do
If you're looking for the sequel, or second half, the story was written and posted shortly after. It's in the library, and its title is, The Hidden Past.
I really enjoyed this story. "The Crucible" left me feeling unsatisfied, wanting a second part of the episode, and this story helped to fill in the gap!
Thank you so much! Love having the blanks filled in!
An interesting WHN.
