I really enjoyed this story, especially the mysterious man!
Jake Durray is one wise man. Thanks for the story, Deb! Well done!
This story touched my heart, wished Adam was coming back for good. Thank you for sharing.
Well done! I could see Joe, as he defended Adam! The explanation as to why he hadn't returned & then Jake's explanation as to why he should have, was brilliant! Because to me, Adam leaving & never returning was inexcusable because they were such a tight family with so much love!
Only wish it had been longer. ;)
I really enjoyed this story. Silly Adam, those Cartwrights were too close to let 5 years matter.
I wish he really had come back! Great story!
Me too! Thanks very much for the review. ~ Debbie
Aw, thank you, JoesGal! That means a lot. I'm glad you enjoyed it. ~Debbie
What a great return story -- sometimes the answers are right in front if us.
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :) ~ Debbie
What a great story. Adam got his answer when he saw Little Joe knocked that miner out. Looking foward to the next chapter in this story.
I'm very please you liked it so much. I'm not sure if I will ever do more on this story, however. From Joe's reaction, again, I believe the reader can determine what the homecoming would be like. ;) ~ Debbie
Enjoy this story very much
Thank you very much, jcg! ~ Debbie
I love the way he is welcome home. Good story.
Thank you very much, lady cat! ~ Deb
LOVED it! I can easily see how Adam could come back to the ranch that way. GREAT job! :)
Thank you very much, Frannie! I'm glad you liked my take on his return. :) ~ Deb
Interesting premise in describing Adam's leaving and his return!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. ~ Debbie
Now this is what we've all wanted----Adam coming home! Wonderful story, Deb, and very well written! Thank you for sharing!
You're welcome. Yes... I would've loved to see him go home in the original series. I'm glad you liked how I had him do that, AdamsGirl! ~ Debbie
Good Story...I wish he had come back....
Oh, me too... but at least fanfic let's us bring him back. :) ~ Debbie
very good storie
Thank you very much! ~ Debbie
Wow ... what an awesome story, and beautifully written! The narrative hinted at what was to come and yet, in the hands of an artful writer, it was still the classic "surprise ending." Thanks so much for sharing, Debbie!
Thank you so much for the lovely compliments and review, pony! I didn't know how it would turn out in the end writing it the way I did, but I'm glad it worked for you. Thanks very much! ~ Debbie
Adam, Adam, Adam, you silly man. Of course they would welcome you with open hearts and open arms. What a neat little story. I always figured that Adam would come back for Christmas. Nice job with a clever twist.
Thank you very much for the lovely review, Penny. I'm delighted you enjoyed it :) ~ Debbie
What a compelling story. Jake is a very wise man.
Thank you very much, mysterygirl! Glad you liked it ~ Debbie
Interesting take on how Adam came home.
Thank you for the review, amras. ~ Debbie
Well written! Left me with a nice feeling of that strong family bond that the Cartwrights were known for.
Oh, I'm so glad, ponytales! It's one of the things I love best about Bonanza. Thank you very much for the lovely review. ~ Debbie
Thank you very much for the nice review, Irish Lady! I'm not sure about a sequel yet, but we'll see... ~ Debbie
Great way to welcome Adam home. He knows how Joe feels and I bet the rest of the family would feel the same way. Thanks Deb for sharing.
You're very welcome, and thank you for the lovely reivew, Terina! I'm very glad you enjoyed the way I brought him home. ~ Debbie
EXCELLENT!! This one deserves more!!
Thank you for the lovely review!! I'm honored you liked it that much. I wasn't planning on doing anymore, but we'll see. ~ Debbie
A wonderful story. Hopefully they will welcome him back with open arms.
Thank you very much, fanofoldtvshows! I'm very glad you liked it :) ~ Debbie
