Review by: Rebecca Freeman on July 31, 2012 :
I highly recommend this story! It has everything I look for in a complete short story: a delightful narrator, intriguing characters, nice physical descriptions, sufficient attention paid to the setting, and a satisfying plot. When I came to the climax of the story, I feared for the protagonist and couldn’t turn my eyes away from the text. Great job!
