Review by: Tom Raimbault on Jan. 24, 2011 :
The opening and closing to this story are a complete contrast from one another. Bridget goes to great length, in the beginning, to illustrate a beautiful and serene place that Mother Nature had reclaimed. If you spend time out in nature, then you certainly know of this place.
But there is an ugliness to this sanctuary that many might overlook. Only the person who is responsible is full aware and in tune with what lies beneath the beauty.
Everlasting love: it's something that we all wish for in our lives. To finally have a beautiful person at your side, sharing your life as the days go by; and perhaps that person might fall in love and see the beauty in you.
But how long does it last? Do you have a sense of anxiety when the season changes or your relationship is under a new circumstance? Maybe you can "cripple" your lover, make him or her appear less beautiful to prevent losing what brings you such happiness in life. As the years go by and your lover ages, he or she might feel like a prisoner.
The years of jealousy, possessiveness, separation anxiety and dependence are often overlooked by those who see nothing more than a beautiful love from the distance.
I give this story 5 stars! Bridget did an excellent job in captivating the horror of possessive love. And if you are prisoner of such painful, destructive love; do read this tale and learn of the ugliness that lies beneath the beauty of that quiet and serene place.

An interesting story starting off with the description of an overgrown orchard before moving on to more sinister surroundings.

However, the story is weakened by excessive descriptions and some poor word choice, such as how 'inspire' is misused.

A story with an unexpected twist (which is rare), but needs work.

Bridget Squires has an obvious talent for constructing flowing, descriptive prose. This is a dark tale, indeed.

Another story painted with a beautiful but very dark brush, a story of longing and possession.

Another dark and disturbing short tale by Ms Squires. And I really liked it. A most effective prose style paints such a vivid and authentic picture that you can almost smell the filth and dankness. Not quite sure why the previous reviewer only felt it worthy of 2 stars, but as they say - there's no accounting for taste.

Ms Squires goes from strength to strength and it's great to see that she's doing the most important thing for any writer - she KEEPS WRITING!! (not always as easy as it sounds!)

Looking forward to your next Bridget!!
