Good short story, but disturbingly realistic! Another winner from Morgen.

Beautiful, haunting imagery of a tormented woman. The author provides a great twist, and the ending is up to the interpretation of the reader. This great short story definitely influenced me to buy 'Story A Day May' by Bailey!

Beautiful, haunting imagery. I don't want to give it away, but the story has a great twist and ending, well, you'll have to interpret what it means. This story definitely influenced me to buy 'Story A Day May' on my Kindle!

This is well constructed, moving and scary. A great short read, but not before bedtime.
