I liked the message of this story. One of the most important aspects of historical fiction is atmosphere, and I was missing a little of that in this story. Try to think of details to evoke the scene in your head - a little goes a long way toward creating the world in your reader's head.
Thank you for sharing your entry on the sting of war. Keep writing.
I enjoyed getting to know these characters--well done with the southern dialect.

The last paragrah was a bit of a letdown--more of a summary than part of the story.

I've started a class in the FaithWriters forums for Beginner and Intermediate writers. I'd love to see you there--look for "Jan's Writing Basics".

Nice little slice of life--I liked it.
Congratulations on taking 6th place in Level 2! You can view the highest rankings each week on the forums:
