Recently, Rick, an RN in Denver, ordered Scent of the Wild from Amazon. After reading the story, he wrote:
You’ve successfully pulled at several frayed strings from my life. I’ve chosen partners in my life poorly. I’ve known Edie and Noreen. How can one know in the beginning of a relationship what it’s future will hold? Then, hanging in there and “doing the right thing” counts for so little later on, and accounts for so many lost years. What buried emotional baggage causes us to continue seeking acceptance where none will ever be found?
For a work of fiction, your story reveals realities experienced across a lifetime. Very well done!
