It's a poignant story. There's a definite sense of sadness of Hoss not being there. If only ...
Interesting to read what kind of life Adam had when he was in Europe and what happened to him when he travelled back home. And... it is still open how Pa and/or Joe tell Adam about Hoss.
So Adam is only coming home after Joe's wife died. Adam has much to tell but Ben and Joe will have too. It will be tough for them all to talk about Hoss.
This is my favorite sentence in this one -
'You know my Pa always used to say that there was no place as beautiful as the Ponderosa but I did not believe him. Now I've seen other places for myself. And you know, my Pa was right.'
Thank you for your story.
Good to have him home but so sad to tell him some of what he will have to know.
I enjoyed reading this story. Could feel the pain that Ben and Little Joe was in over Hoss.
I loved this story. Interesting insight in Adam's life beyond the Ponderosa. Well done.
Ben is such a wonderful Pa and I love how he act with Adam...my heard will break ,poor Adam...so helpless in his bed...I wept a lot it is so sad,but my compliments to you...you wrote excellent stories...very intensive...great
Great use of that quote, "A sad story is about to begin!" But what an awful time Adam had getting home. It's going to be difficult for Pa to tell him about Hoss.
Adam back at the Ponderosa where he belongs. If only Hoss were there too. Eager to read more.
Thanks fot your review.
the fates were armed against Adam, trying to prevent his return home. But, he would not be swayed and he persevered. How regretable that the joyous home coming is clouded by the shadow of tragedy.
Great narrative. thanks.
Thanks for the review.
Two nicely written short stories that could easily be rolled into one story and furthur development added.
I enjoyed reading them and look forward to seeing more from the author
AWW. Thank you. Actually the first story was for a prompt and the rest just flowed from that.
What a wonderful sequel. I hope you write another chapter and let us know how Ben breaks the news to Adam about his brother. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your review.
Deansgirl, you have a way with words. You have left us hanging here so I hope you have more planned. There is so much for Adam to knoow about since he left and I think there is more to his story also.
Interesting story about what had transpired in Adam's life and I guess even Indian girl's are putty in Adam's hands. So....you thinking about Adam with an Indian wife, perhaps? Or is that girl overseas going to find our darlin' Adam again?
LOL. Adamant, I never thought of an Indian wife. Thanks for the review.
No way that can't be the end. You have to write another story and continue with your series. For the mean time I'll be waiting.
Thanks for your review.
That is a very interesting story and I hope there is more
There might be, Pam, if you tell me what you would like to read about. Thanks for the review.
You did a nice job of trying the two stories together, deansgirl! Filled in some of the questions I had from before. Thanks for writing FanFic!
Thanks for your encouragement, Tracy. I'm glad this story answered your questions.
