Review by: Shawn O'Toole on Sep. 18, 2013 :
A poignant tale of the human condition as it is on the INSIDE. Interesting how we all have our own "drugs" and must overcome our addictions if we are to be free. The characters were well developed for such a short story. The dialog was real and wonderfully human. The surprises were VERY surprising but made complete sense. So as not to spoil the tale, I shall discreetly comment that the personal observations of Father O'Neil created and impressive empathy without confusing the reader.

Review by: Michael Carter on July 23, 2013 :
Again, the writing here is very good, amid an ambiguous story of a meeting in a lonely church. The tale leaves you asking questions as to what has happenned; not always a good thing, but here for the right reasons. It's very readable, interesting, and at one point I thought it was going to slide into blasphemous erotica [Blake's story "Tiffany" also lingers on the cusp of erotica]. Good story, worth a read.

To be a pedant, I noticed a "hear" instead of "here", a mere typing error really and an unusual error in Blake's work, and at one point, the girl says "Still, it's rather late.." and this tiny little bit of dialogue ["rather"] seemed out of character for her.
