Title: Chapter 1: TO WAKE A SLEEPING BEAUTY Reviewer: Bejules Signed

Loved this story Patina - Joe at his very best and so cute and precious.  I laughed so much with the antics Joe got up to and of course coercing Hoss to help.  I could just picture Adam's face when he 'awoke'. :lol  Thank you. 



Author's Response:

Thank you, Jules!  Little Joe must have been quite the scamp as a child.  I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed this story.

Thanks for a good comical read Terina! Your story is very well written. A great mixture of both drama and comedy, and highlights how the two can be combined together to give a good read. A combination of brotherly love as well as brotherly humour, alongside a bumbling set of circumstances that Adam finds himself in the midst of! Thank goodness those three rustlers were that inept!

So many emotions in this short story. It just shows that love and hope can still win out after many years.  Those Cartwrights never would give up hoping would they.  Loved the joyful ending, and they way you wrote it, it's easy to envisage the scene of Adams homecoming.  Thank you.

What a fab and uniquely styled story!  Not your normal cowboy tale and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. You have the characterisations of the Cartwrights spot on and their dialogue and mannerisms are perfect. As you know Joe is my favourite character also, and you write him in such a way, that even as a young man, he is totally in character! I just love the ending of this story and you summed up Joe’s uniqueness and position in his family in a such a wonderful way!  Thank you for a great read.



Author's Response:

Thanks so much, Bejules! I'm glad you enjoyed this story! You're right, not exactly a typical cowboy story to say the least! I know you are a huge admirer of Joe (as am I) so I especially appreciate knowing this story resonated with you. Thank you again, my friend!
