Interesting sequel. Adam's character has changed. Maybe with the love of Lucy he will come back to his normal character and because he DESERVES happiness.

I really enjoyed it.

Author's Response:

Yes, he does deserve happiness. I think that had Adam gone through such a devastating loss in the show, his character wu ould have changed (and if the character had been able to develop more depth, I wonder if PR would have stayed!) Thank you for reading and commenting.

I am glad Adam released and let Lucy in! Wonder if Hop Sing shared his book?  Now I think there is a sequel to this one, right? Will start that one tomorrow . Great story here, ant

Author's Response:

Yes, there is a sequel to this but there is another story in the Adam/Lucy arc that is "The Doublewalker." It has Reverend Dave played by PR from the Bronco episde, "The Belles of Silver Flats." Glad that you liked this. (Dont think Hop Sing shared his gift no more than Hoss did!)

splendid part...I love this story. Congratulations. I love the way you describe Adam...really. :)

Author's Response:

I am glad that you like the story so much, Since I had put Adam through so much in a previous story, I felt that he would have been a changed man when he returned from the sea. And thanks for liking a "darker" Adam; not many readers do.

Where do I start? I guess Thank God for Lucy! Adam did lose his sence of civalization and he needed someone like Lucy's pure love to help him find himself again. Beautifully writen, very emotional - the reader starts to see Adam as a man who still has a long way to go but if he lets Lucy and his family help he could start to leave the past in the past. Looks like Roy's doing that. Can'y wait to read the next story to see what happens!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Author's Response:

So glad that you liked this, Penny. Thank you for the nice words!

Wish he had kept going right there with the relationship with Lucy.  He needed her to help heal his soul.

Author's Response:

Lucy was a balm for his soul. (PS--the re;ationship continues in my first NaNoWri--"Absolute Bearing.")

Very nice story.  Too bad Adam didn't think he was not deserving of Lucy's love.  I am glad he finally did realize he is worth her love and to love her in return.

Author's Response:

I like this story as well--for some starnge reason. I'm glad that you saw that Adam had to get his head staight and trust again. Thanks for reading and giving your opinion.

I really enjoyed it, and wondered what Adam would encounter back in VC, especially from Roy Coffee. I still wonder why Roy didn't pursue Adam, but then again I'm not sure how I would have written that part myself! Adam was really a changed man, which you portrayed so well in his encounter with Handy, when everyone saw firsthand how things had changed. And good for Lucy, who pursued Adam when others probably would have given up, especially in the face of his coldness. I'm glad she prevailed. Have you written any more stories about Adam and Lucy? If not, it would be interesting to see how they're getting along (not so subtle hint). Thanks for the great story.

Author's Response:

The way I figured it, after all that time, Roy still had no evidence against Adam so there would be nothing to follow-up. I loved Lucy---no reference to the TV show!  :) -- and "Absolute Bearing_ is the follow-up story of Adam and Lucy--it's long--was my NaNoWri challenge story. And since you asked, "The Double-walker" is another prequel story of Adam and Lucy. There is another story, "The Wiving of Adam" but Lucy is dead at the beginning. I'm not spoiling anything because it's revealed in the first section. Read at your own risk! :-D

Thanks for reading and I'm pleased that you liked the story.

Wow...all I am going to say. definitely captured how Adam must have felt coming home.

My Dad was a Mariner for roughly 40+years. When he came home after several trips at once, I admit he was different. He told me years later that a sea life wasn't for a married man.

Great job! I absolutely loved it. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you for such a generous review; I imagined that after being gone for five years at sea, Adam had to be different--that you for validating that. This is one of my favorite stories that I wrote (some I want to delete!) so I'm glad that you like it as well. :-)

Wonderful story weaved with bits of happiness and devestating sorrow.

After reading the first stoy, I wasn't sure what would happen to adam, and several scenarios played in my head.

The route you chose to continue the story is spectacular.

Now, I wonder if Adam can return completely to the life he once had.


Thanks for a great story, Adamant.

Author's Response:

Well, this is the second--my NaNoWri is the third story. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Again a very interesting interpretation of Adam. Can't say I blame the way he dealt with Handy he asked for it and given the opportunity intended to be equally violent.

I liked Lucy and the way she helped Adam redeem his soul.

Another thoughtful story thanks for sharing.

Author's Response:

I was surprised and glad to see that someone had reviewed this story and "A Type..." For some reason, I particularly liked writing these two and was disappointed in a way that when I wrote " To Suffer..." as a WIP, not many people read it and I loved "To Suffer..." so much. It was like having an ugly baby that no one oohs! and Ahhs! over.  :-D  Thanks for sayong something nice about my "baby." I appreciate it.

I really enjoyed this story also. I also hope you continue Adam and Lucy stories. Maybe there could be a story for the R-rated forum.

Author's Response:

Maybe there could be one (I'm searching for legitimacy :) in my stories here.)  Anyway, R or not, I'm glad that you liked this one and enjoyed it! But I will consider your suggestion Kimberly. Always looking for fresh ideas.

Adam seemed to lose himself and his sould for a while, but the love of a good woman started him on the road to redemption.  Loved how you brought out how Adam acted on his travels and how he tried to fit back in with his family.  I hope you will give us more Lucy and Adam stories.  Thanks for sharing.

Author's Response:

Thanks, Terina, for taking the time to review this in the Library.  I'm glad that you liked it and that you let me know.

You really know Adam, even though you have changed his character, because of the way of life he has led, has the sea spat him back a bitter man, l don't think so, l know there must be more to this story, l look forward to it.

Author's Response:

I'm glad that you like the story, ansinico. Adam's bitterness is the result of what happened to him previously--this story is a sequel-that prompted him to take to the sea. The darker aspects of his personality were brought out by a traumatic, tragic event that killed a bit of his humanity.
