Title: Chapter 1: A Woman Cloaked in Scandal Reviewer: Lisala Signed

So much to love about this, I'm not sure where to start.  First and foremost I love your version of Marie - her pride, her pain, her love for her boys, her wisdom.  You found the perfect way to add backstory and it blended in seamlessly.  The conversation Adam and marie had regarding him always taking care of his brothers was especially touching without being sappy - an ability i envy.

Secondly, I think you do first person extremely well. I seriously felt like I was watching him think whether on top of sport or near the lake or heading home You're writing overall is so easy to read and it's very easy to get lost  in the story,  which is not an simple task for a writer. Your details are perfectly placed and not overdone.

Thirdly,  I just like the story overall.  SO much.  Adam is so beautiful in it.  J'adore.

 



Author's Response: Thank you, Lisala, for your detailed review! I enjoy writing Marie and her possible relationship with Adam--it must have been complex and multi-layered. When I started this story, it was third person and a struggle but changing the POV made all the difference. Merci for reading and letting me know you enjoyed this story.

 I'm very glad to have been assigned to read this delightful story.   Your writing flows like a .melody,, your dialogue is true to life and your characterizations of the Cartwrights - especially Ben - rings authentic to a fan (me!) who has loved them for most of her life.  I found the ending warm and loving.  Beautiful job.

This is a new favorite story!

 

Reading your stories, I feel like you see the young Cartwrights and their family dynamic the way I see them and perhaps that feeling is universal for everyone but it definitely makes your things (prequel or otherwise) easy to read and joyful and true. There are always surprises in your actions, too - little actions or interactions or descriptions that make me think, "wow, I wish I'd written that" - Hoss's swinging feet, Adam's protective sideways glasses, Ben's "I'm happy..." bit of dialogue at the end.  This is an expertly-written and easy-to-read story of love and family.  I really loved it, Tracy.



Author's Response:

Thank you, Lisal, for the kind review. I'm glad we share the same ideas about the young Cartwrights.

Title: Chapter 1: The Child Reviewer: Lisal Signed

This brought tears to my eyes and that statement is honest - just like this brutally honest and human story.  Ben's grief and reluctance with Adam was painful but believable and it made the emotion of watching him come round and finally love his son(while finding hope again) all that much stronger.  

Your writing is so tight and efficient - but never bland or unimaginative.  Reading pulled me fully into the dream without feeling as if I put in any effort at all.

 

I read this for the reading challenge because we're supposed to revisit an old favorite.  While this is the first time I've read this particular story of yours, you've become an author who never disappoints.  You are a favorite for sure.



Author's Response:

Thank you for choosig to read this -- and it is short, to be sure, but it was written for a purpose -- to remember the actor/s. Although mothers often fall immediately in love with their newborns, for fathers, it must take a while to accept the dependent, little alien being and to love it -- to truly fall hopelessly in love. That was the idea I worked with and wanted to convey.

What a darling story.  Is there a sequel? 

 

So many things in this made me smile, i.e 

Hoss's thoughtfulness- worrying about his father being in pain even while he was in pain being picked on.

The story of him saving the bunny -  Adam was right when he said most girls love God's creatures!

Joe in trouble already and here it's just his first year of school! Haha.

Adam relishing in his advice-giving older brother role.

 

I loved the ending.

I enjoy stories like I enjoy songs  - simple and short but tight and power-packed with words and notes that mean something and aren't just filler. This does just that.  It's a great story loaded with action .

I can't say it didn't sting to see Adam graying and limping but I could picture him perfectly.  You portrayed a tougher and more mature Adam so believably - i just wish we could have seen him come home on the show. I love his lesson - you wrote the fight scene so well I could see each overturned table and whack to the noggin.

The Jessups were quite the characters.  They got schooled, didn't they? And it was nice to see Sam get a starring role and have a story told from his point of view.. I love how he got his courage back.  Adam is a good inspiration. 

The whole thing was very well- done and I recommend this to anyone   looking for a fun quick ride!i

To start a story in the midst of a man's hopelessness and grab a reader's  aor I should say readers') attention takes finesse and skill.  I couldn't put this one down and I felt it all... the grief, the resignation, the duty, the relief. You put Adam through hell  and you did it with such careful gritty realism...   he was more than a character in this, he was a real man.  I even grew to love  Kat.

Your writing is superB.

 This was a well spent evening. Thank you.

 

 

PS I apologize for the typos. There is something wrong with the spell check on my phone...  it is correcting words that don't need to be corrected.

 

 



Author's Response:

First, I don't think it's your phone -- I find I always have typos when typing in here. One has to type slowly and deliberately. Your phone program only tried to make sense of things. : )

 

Second, your review did my heart good; I'm more than merely pleased the story didn't bore you as that is the death knoll in my opinion. I try to make the Cartwrights actual people. That way, I feel the stories are not just a homage to the characters but the actors as well; they live on.

 

Thank you for the review -- I know people must read many stories and not leave reviews so it's always a joy when someone does.

This story is so touching and it portrays exactly what the title says.... I love the way you showed Adam and Joe's love for one another, how you got into their heads and how you tugged my heart strings.  Plus the horses! So glad you added in showing the boys' concern for them.

I'm leaving a meatier review on the forum for reader's choice but I dont have time to write all the things I want at the moment. Just know I really loved the story - the plot, the dialogue, the setting, - everything.  Beautiful job, Sharry.



Author's Response:

I appreciate your feedback.  Thank you so much! 

I've always thought the bonds between all three brothers were complicated, but strong.  It had nothing to do with seeing eye to eye on all things.  They were family to the depth of their souls in so many ways that could never be truly undone. 

Adam and Joe have always been especially interesting to me.  They have extra layers to their relationship that are so fun to pull apart and examine a little more slowly.  I've always thought the two of them would not have to waste a lot of time on words because they already had so much deep seated understanding established between them.  I took a stab at filling in some of those blanks.  :)

This is a charming story with a gorgeous, yet hazardous setting.  The snowstorm was vivid and nerve-wracking at first then cozy once Hoss found the cabin (although slightly heartbreaking with the loss of the mule). 

Jack and James were immediately likable and authentic  - no stereotypes just real men.  i LOVE Boulder and how he protects the animals (and Snowflake too though we never meet him/her). I was pleasantly surprised to find out the boys were on the trail with the Cartwrights.   Their description of Adam being spunky and smart made me smile.  

I admire your writing style - your descriptions are perfect and you put just the right amount of emotion in - for example having them go silent right up there they told about how their mother died was very effective.  The ending I don't want to give away but was very effective too.

This was a warm-hearted story to savor over a nice cup of tea on a wintry evening. Kudos!

Your writing is easy to read and quite powerful without being melodramatic.  The scenes with Adam and Lotta are entrancing.  Joe is fun and the whole gang comes across as so authentic and true to character.   I enjoy your action scenes and your dialogue and pretty much everything about your writing style.
