Second Chances (Short Story) - 7/23/2007 6:07:00 PM
I enjoyed this, Stacey. There's just something magical in the idea of lost love being found again. I was drawn to your characters and their situation immediately. Very likeable folks. The only thing I could offer in the way of criticism is the very ending of chapter one, starting with "They did make a valiant effort to stay together..." I would have liked to have seen that in a couple of scenes, maybe eavesdrop on the awkward phone calls, or something like that. I think it would give their reunion that much more impact.
You have a nice writing style and a wonderful grasp of human nature.
