Martie is the kind of writer that sees the world through a raindrop - images are magnified and words are profoundly plumped with sensations and imagery that make us slow down to read her words yet again, so perfumed are they with the scent of life. Yet, such imagery can take a dark and shattering turn by a flick of her pen as she thrusts the reality of unmerciful pain, and makes the reader take a step back, perhaps in memory of their own anguish, before picking up the story again.
Like a good author, she does leave us with the embrace of hope, the idea that although as we step into the shoes of any of her characters, like they, we might rise again like a Phoenix to find that quite often, we are the shapers of our own destiny, good or bad, as you will find in the story of Sweet William.

...often I paused the flow of the story just to reread a scene and savor it's descriptive delight
...often I recognized in those words the author's spirit producing little surprise explosions of clear insight into her characters' (and life's) conditions
...in so few pages Martie Ingebretson's efficiency and breadth of language express the fullness of life
...the colorful nubby-textured fabric of William's story is cleverly, lovingly woven
I won't relate the tale of technological tangles inflicted upon me to obtain this little book; will just say all were worth unknotting to receive the reward.
If the publisher decides to do an old-fashioned paper run of Sweet William please notify ME. I would enjoy having it in my library.
I could then buy several copies for 'you-can-get-through-this' gifts.
Looking forward to more from Martie Ingebretson.
It touches the soul where it lives and sometimes where it hides from the pain in life.
All together, it is one of the best stories I have read.
Martie writes with the delicacy of lace and yet, when necessary, she digs deep and shows dismal truths. I am busy recommending her first novella to everyone I know.
