Excellent. It reminds me that even the worse things that happen in life are not without Divine purpose. Thanks. Great job.
A great reminder of God's desire/ability to restore and redeem. Marvelous story-telling skills! Captivating, all the way through. I loved your last line.

What did I love about this? EVERYTHING! But, if you would like me to be more specific, I loved the fact it was based on truth, the amazing description, the way you juxtaposed his memory so flawlessly into this story, and your amazing characterization. Wow!

Great piece of writing. I'm reminded of David saying, "Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word." Amazing how our trials can be a journey to glory, not just for us but for those we are sent to.
You have told this man's story so strongly that I felt the need to read over again to try and capture the fullness of the times, the smells, the place that you have been able to evoke. As ever Helen, excellent and strong writing. God bless. xx
