A frightening situation with many moving parts and people in various locations and yet you write these scenes with precision.  Your characters never lose focus on what is before them.

I absolutely love the words in italics and the hidden gems inside them, just waiting to be revealed at the precise moment.  The way you dispersed them throughout your story is exceptional.  Great writing!

This is a real deep-dive into the hearts and souls of all of them.  Ben, Adam, Hoss and Little Joe.

I love the tons of details you put in this simply pouring a glass of brandy can be done with so much love.

I could easily envision this as a little Bonanza mini-series.  It's that good.  It's that rich.

I recommend this to everyone.

This is a beautiful story told in a beautiful way.

The tension and suspense are very real for each one of them.

There's a poignant mystery woven throughout this as well.  It's very hard to guess ahead in this story.  You just don't know what will happen next or how it will happen.  Riveting!

I love the theme of family and love and the bond that holds them all together.  And the way you've portrayed this is really beautiful.

I laughed out loud at Ben and Hoss that first night.  😉  So Bonanza!

(Chapters 16-20)


Author's Response:

Well, knowing you feel the Bonanza characters and situations are believable makes my day! Thank you!

The tension and anticipation are building.  You do this extremely well.

It's like you're peeling an onion with words.  Each layer revealing a little bit more each time.

I felt like I was right there with them because of your vivid, descriptive writing.  Kudos!

This is such a fluid situation, but you handle it with such delicacy.

Very well done.

I love the scene with Ben in chapter six. So poignant.  Good stuff!

The excitement and anticipation leap off the pages.

You've really captured your readers.  There's no way I can stop reading.  I can't wait to find out what happens next.

And the song...oh my!  I hadn't heard it in a while and I literally stopped reading and listened to it again.  Beautiful and heart wrenching at the same time.  Perfectly timed and perfectly chosen.

Title: Chapter 5 Reviewer: Tahoe Lee Signed

This is an extremely touching and emotional story.

I loved it from the very first page.

The rising tension and anticipation are compelling and written so well.

What a lovely phrase..."Simple acts of Cartwright kindness."

There's a wonderful blending of voices and hearts that is done with great care for all four men.

So many times, in TV especially, there's an emotional scene and it's almost gone as quickly as it came.  I love how you've given each Cartwright the space and time to feel and to breathe.

Author's Response:

Tahoe Lee, I appreciate any reader who tackles this lengthy story! Your comments are so kind. At times, it is difficult for me to know just 'how much is enough' when writing the Cartwrights' emotions. I'm pleased you find my scenes have what it takes without going overboard. Thank you for reading and reviewing.
