Love the writing style and the story but it's the message that is most amazing-isn't it? So many do walk around burdened by trying to earn their salvation! Fabulous job! Hope this story get's 'out there'! :)

Delightful in every way, with significant insight to be absorbed.
Clever title. Thought provoking allegory. Great message within. Good job!
Captivating! Love this!

A lovely allegoric story and very well written. well done!
This was a thought provoking and beautifully written piece. An allegory indeed! It reminded me of Hannah Hurnard's beautiful writing. The lesson of this piece of being bound only by His love is a wonderful one. I was unsure about what to make of exactly what the compound was and their locks and chains. I sort of got the idea, but a brief preface would have been helpful. This may not have been possible due to the word limit. I would only say if you ever make this into a book (which would certainly be a great idea), that like Hannah Hurnard does with her Hind's Feet book, a preface would be helpful for the reader. I love your writing though, the characters are always so palpable. Great job!

An amazing allegory. The joy of being free was so prevalent in this story. I truly enjoyed it and waited with anticipation to see how it was going to unfold.
Very well done.Loved it. Message came across loud and clear.

Such a delightful allegory into the works of the flesh. The chains reminded me of Pilgrims sack of burdens. Superbly crafted and deliciously ponder-able.
This story is filled with promise and hope rewarded. It reads smoothly and is very visual and the reader can easily identify with your MC. Sometimes it is so difficult to understand the unlocking of the chains - but your allegory gives simple but profound insights.
