From the description I eagerly looked forward to reading this short story. From the beginning I enjoyed the way it was written, the man and the old dog. I assumed I knew where the woman had gone. I felt sorry for the man. I walked with him in the fields and watched the corn grow, then I returned to the house with him.
That is where things went wrong. I knew what was up and I didn’t like it, but I figured this was his way of dealing. But then I reached the end and have to say that I was disappointed because it seemed to end without being finished. It was too abrupt. So a better, more finished ending would have been what I would have hoped for so I could have left the story satisfied that he did what he needed to do. For this reason I can only give this story three stars…I would have liked to have given it more.
