As a Montana native, reading this short story was a must. I did not know what to expect going in, and for that I am thankful. As others have mentioned, the main character is a journalist who is given an assignment in her home town; a town she has not returned to due to a dark past she worked so hard to run from.

And this is where the story really begins. Returning home was the last thing Sunny ever wanted to do, but as a budding journalist, she cannot turn down a chance at a feature article, so back home she goes, and what she finds there will alter her life in ways she never dreamed possible.

To say more about the story line would reveal too much of the story's elements, and as I was grateful to enter into the world of Sunny without a clue as to what to expect, I will grant readers the same courtesy. I will say that the author conveys an important message within her short story; a message told through the eyes and actions of her characters. It's an implied message, but comes through loud and clear. Returning home to face a dark past one wants desperately to forget, no matter the circumstances, can be the best possible decision a person can make.

As for the bones of the story, readers will appreciate a well-edited (pet peeve of mine) and solid read. For a short story, the author does a great job breathing life into the characters and the setting with minimal space with which to do so. The storyline progresses at a steady pace; neither too rushed nor too slow and despite being a short story, there are no holes in the plot or sub-plots, nor are there any loose ends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! Made me want more February 8, 2013

I was really surprised that the author told such a three dimensional story in such a short space. The characters were well developed and the plot was good. I was pulled right into this story from the very beginning. This was a perfect way to spend a few minutes at lunch break and I will certainly look for more titles from this author. I'd recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS A SHORT-STORY! January 23, 2013

When I bought this book I was not aware it was a short story,but I'm glad I got it anyway. If I hadn't, I would have missed out on a beautifully written story about a girl's trip home. It's a must read..

What a well written story about a photo journalist and a father she never wanted to meet. A few well placed twist and the story is complete. It is a story that will make you want to know both sides of the story before any conclusions are drawn.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little too short May 13, 2013

I think this book would have made a better read if the author had added a little more detail to the book. It was a little too jumpy for me...

The story overall was start and stop, too jerky to get a real feel for the character or the setting until after the fact. The plot line is way too unbelievable to make it work smoothly, especially as a short story. I get the feeling that if the potential to be a longer story it might improve it.
