Powerful and yet intimate too.
I like the different POV's. It works well and you have it structured nicely so it's not confusing. Each one of them have their own unique perspective.
You have a nice writing style. You write emotion very well...not sappy but very realistic.
Although the subject matter is very disturbing, you handle it with great dignity and respect.
Your portrayal of the Cartwrights is spot on.
The ending, and what was imparted from one generation to the next, is something we should all strive for and take to heart in our own lives.
This is a story that is deep, rich and daring.
Daring to go deep and explore the full range of emotions. Daring to explore despair and finding simple truths...just waiting to be discovered. Truths that would change their lives forever.
Well done, debpet!
