What is the secret of the ranch? Seems like there should be a completeness here. Intriguing story - I like the want ad approach. Held my interest.

The "secret" is there. I like how you hid it, but provided clues so that could guess what happened. Facing the past is the only way to find peace in the present. Great job.

This was absolutely tactile, especially the second half. Loved how you weaved the chapter from Ezekiel (one of my VERY favorites!) into the story. And the ending is just PERFECT! Wish I knew what the "secret" was - but I can't think of what I'd want you to cut out to make room to share it!!

I think it's the better for not sharing the secret - makes for a great read, the best stories asre those that leave things for the imagination to fill in.

A powerful story, just enough details to make us think about what had happened, without spelling it out (speaking of -numbers under 100 should be spelled out, except the phone numbers ;) ). A very well told story.
