The main characters Daniel and Willow were charming and very real, and the way the author handled the romantic scenes really impressive! There were strong messages about how mans greed can threaten our planet, something I know is close to the authors heart.
I must confess to being a little confused by the mysterious hair dryer, and must have missed something there.
I am not a huge fan of short stories, as they are never quite long enough for me somehow. This story could have been so much longer, as I for one, wanted to know if disaster would be avoided and that Willow really would be okay. I get the feeling this story or its theme may continue somewhere else along the way, and I shall be looking forward to it!
Wow! I cannot believe this ebook was only about 20 pages long, there was so much content for a short story. Daniel returns home after the Vietnam War and finds the girl he thought he had loved and lost Willow working at the local vet clinic.
The book deals with various subject matters, war, loss, love, and corruption it is beautifully written.
I also appreciated how the cover art matched the ending of the book.

Though it is only a short story, Starling packs a lot in his well written plot. Dragen is an interesting character that I'm sure has more stories to tell.
The first person he comes across is Willow, the girl he thought he'd lost. After a long enlistment, Daniel comes home to a different town. A town that is now overtaken by a huge factory which is having a devastating affect on the towns environment.
Daniels uncle was devoted to preserving their little town but passed away before Daniel returned home. Despite being hugely overqualified, Daniel accepts a menial job at the factory, which he was extremely grateful for, despite being offered more exciting prospects in New York. He is a true gentleman and doesn't want to leave his lovely girlfriend Willow, who is now a Vet living in a small hut on the animal sanctuary she has built. It doesn't take long for her to admit to having always loved Daniel. Ahhh!
The way the author has introduced the impact of pollution in this book was very well done. It was informative without feeling like you were being lectured. Ben Starling's love of wildlife is apparent throughout the book but again was in no way intrusive. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will come away from this book without gaining at least a little more knowledge about environmental factors. I do feel that these facts were vital in this book as it does have a direct impact on both the H&h.
Danny and Willow's love story was simply beautiful. They reunited almost instantly, but it felt very organic and not at all forced. They are two wonderfully decent people who you just can't help falling in love with.
As you'd expect from any story, there are some difficult issues to overcome, for the happy couple, and I'll warn you now, it'll make you cry. BUT , there is a happy ever after of sorts. I'm personally hoping there'll be a follow-up book, as even though it ended on a beautiful moment, I know that I'll be wondering what happened to them after the final page. (Yes, I am a greedy girl, I know!) I need to know why Daniel is the way he is? does he ever tell Willow?
Will Ben ever tell me?
I adored the scene in the diner with Helicopter and Poison Ivy. Hillarious! And Willows animals made me want to jump into the book to give them some treats and a huge hug.
The writing style of this book was beautiful. It flowed so easily from one page to the next with absolutely no distractions. There are no cheesy pickup lines, but more than a few witty jokes and comments that'll be sure to make you smile.
My favourite quote from the book was from Uncle Steve, "Wrap up your past and you'll unwrap a perfect present.” How cool is that? I know it's one I'll use again in life... Thanks for that, Ben!
Overall, this is a short, sweet story that'll cost you just 99p. It'll take you a couple of hours to read, what have you got to lose? I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series... I just wish I hadn't read the 5 chapters that Ben included, as I have to wait until January to see how it all turns out.
This story was a wonderful read for a multitude of reasons. I loved the setting and the time period - in a small town after the Vietnam War ended. I loved the realism, the characters, and the story line. And most of all, I loved the romance.
The author really makes you feel for the characters, which is not always easy to pull off in a short story. Daniel returns home from war, and he reunites with the woman he was with before he left. And even though we never actually meet Daniel's uncle, I really liked his character and was able to get a strong sense for who he was. I also felt that the conversations were well done and realistic.
Not only is this a sad but touching romance story, it also shows the devastation and harm that can be caused by companies motivated by greed.
My only complaint is that I wanted to read more, and I hope the author takes that as a compliment because it is one! This was a well-written short story that I'd definitely recommend to others.
