A very good story that I enjoyed reading.

You did a great job in creating the character of Charley and the dialogue you gave him and his mannerisms made him so real. 

I really like the different POV's and how you structured them in your story.  Each one had a unique perspective on what was happening and you highlighted that very well.  It was almost as if you let them be their own person, their own man, with their own feelings and thoughts.

You really delve into the loving but very different relationship that Hoss and Joe have with Adam.  Compelling to read about Joe's feelings - "month to month."

My heart was touched when I read "whispering his name."  So poignant.   I could feel their ache for him.  Good descriptive writing.

Your love for Adam and all the C's really shines through.  His tender heart and their human imperfections make them all the more real and lovable. 

I'd like to give all four of them a hug after reading this.

Well done!

Thanks, TL for this generous review. I really appreciate your inspiration a n d encouragement. This story was a tough one that started with a  prospects challenge and ended up taking a life of its own and ended up a little more controversial than ones I've put up thus far so it's been a little unnerving keeping it up, tbh. My main worry in writing these guys is that my love for the boys shines through so for you to see that in this one eases my worry so much. I am so very grateful. Thank you.

It’s a shame the people in town are judging Adam when they likely knew him so many years. I could see Adam had an invisible line with a tough decision to make. Despite the piece starting off dramatic you tie it all together in believable Cartwright fashion.

that was a very nice story, poor Adam finding love from a women he can't have. I felt Joes pain as well he seemed very hurt by finding out his brother was so close but didn't want to contact his faimly about the fact he had come back from the east. I liked how each family member seemed to take turns telling there side of the story yet it was seemly and still moved the story along at a good pace.

Of all the "where Adam went" stories I've read, this one is unique. The perspectivs of Ben, Hoss, Joe, and finally Adam fill in blanks and lay out Ponderosa life after Adam - until the ending. I won't give it away, but I will say the closure left me wondering WHN (What Happens Next) in the life of Adam cartwright and his family. 

Author's Response:

Thank you, Tracy for your encouragement.  It really helped me through this slump.   Unique is a good word - since inadvertently stealing plots terrifies me.
