I enjoyed the introduction/reintroduction, of Edwin Booth to the Carwtright saga. I had read a biography about Edwin Booth and John Wilkes Booth and relations between the two had always been difficult but after the assassination, Edwin supposedly never mentioned his brother again. I liked that Edwin returned to his old friend, Adam, for a period of respite knowing he wouldn't be judged for his brother's crime. And Adam leaving the Ponderosa, no matter what the reason, is always problematc but it was handled well. An interesting story that explores more of Adam's psyche and his desie to "Know thyself."Author's Response:
Adamant, thank you so much for your very understanding comments! Being very much a theater fan myself, the idea of the friendship between Adam and Edwin Booth always intrigued me, and this story allowed me to indulge those interests in a very satisfying way.
