This short story packed quite a punch. The story drew me in and kept me involved throughout. I have to say I finished it in one setting; I couldn’t put it down. Or rather I didn’t dare put it down. It had all the comedy and tragedy of a full length novel packed neatly into a short story.
I wasn’t too surprised at the ending; just saddened. Cause and effect are shockingly close together sometimes and this story brings that forefront for all to see. I really liked the way the author wove the story over the generations and didn’t have any problems following the logic of the decisions made by the actors.
I very much enjoyed reading this short story and pray this never happens to me.
