This is more my style of writing. It starts out as a sad story loaded with grief (an indication of my state of mind at the time?), but I hope the reader will ultimately feel a sense of joy and hope.
Whilst there is a lot of me in this story I must point out that thankfully, so far, I have not experienced such grief other than having to make the decision that my character, Lynn, had to make.
Constructive criticism is welcomed. 🙂
