Beautiful storytelling. I was deeply moved and felt I was part of the journey with Ruth. As a mother, I recognized her fears and the work it takes to not allow those fears to take over my life.
Smooth, laconic prose. Left me with many questions.
Thank you, Kay Eldredge, for your courage in exploring that complex, terrifying, sorrowful world of the lost child. Beautiful storytelling that catches one off guard, leaving a long impression.
I found this story moving and very well told. Not a false step anywhere.
I found your story intriguing and beautifully rendered. I'll look for more of your stories. I liked the twists and turns in Ruth's mind and really felt I was there with her all the way - sort of a scary ride, but good. Thanks for writing and sharing this. Well done!
