Wow! I loved this so much!
This is truly an inspired story. Even the title is simple and perfect. What a lovely memorial for Pernell. I believe he was born to play Adam Cartwright and that seed was in him....destiny.
Amazed at your summary of "Paradise Lost." Fabulous! Spot on! Tony Lawrence would be proud.
Your great writing skills evokes emotion in the reader.
You examined Ben's grief and inner struggles so tenderly and delicately.
Adamant...I really believe this story should be posted on the Main Forum every year on Pernell's birthday. It's that good!
Your love and honor for Pernell leaps out from the pages...
Thank you for finding this short, little story I wrote for PR. I always wondered about Ben having to deal with a newborn -- they are such alien-type beings -- since he had no real experience and he had just suffered such a great loss.
I don't know that PR would have agreed he was born to play Adam, but I am thankful he did. I appreciate your praise and that you like this so much. Thank you for your review.
