“This story is beautifully written, and I read it several times, admiring the craftsmanship – confident, strong, with sophisticated depth and design. I recognized the first sentence, of course (the prompt) but it was the rest of the opening paragraph that gripped me. The stakes are life and death, the voice is honest and authentic, the language sepia-tinted from history, and the drama is real.” Sarah Selecky
