Review by: Rose Renee Shelly on Aug. 29, 2011 :
What a moving love story, and as the blurb says, "of a different sort." I found myself crying at one point, and laughing at another. For Gays who want to see past the immediate future, take a glance down the road of life, and see what life really has to offer, this is one great short story to read. I particularly loved the scene where the two were lying on the grass, gazing up at the sky, and building their castles in the air one final time. VERY moving. A bittersweet romance. This story is worth a full five stars! One cautionary note: this isn't erotica, doesn't claim to be, but rather is a love story. And I loved it.

Review by: George Kempland on Aug. 29, 2011 :
The description of this story is that it is a different sort of love story. Well, it is. Finally, something that speaks to the Gay community that isn't just about twinks falling in love and their sex antics. This is a story of real love, the kind forged over years, love found, and love lost. That, to me, makes for a much meatier, more significant piece of work. It left me wondering about just exactly what does life does mean, the nature of love, and the grief of it's loss, and yet the wonderful ability to find some solace in life, even so, and even under harsh conditions. This was a great tale. This is one "literary" short story.

Review by: Rob Shelsky on Aug. 29, 2011 :
I just read Flowers in February by Kem Austin and I was delighted! Finally, a wonderful love story about older Gays who love each other, deeply and spiritually. This isn't erotica, not meant as just Gay porn, but a very compassionate story. It made me laugh, and yes, even cry. Gay men dealing with advancing years, the loss of loved ones, and facing what could be a bleak future if they didn't approach it the right way--that's what this short story is about. I loved it!
