Review: This story won my heart. I love the cover also. It’s so well written for such a short story.
Whit Stoddard is a reporter in the time of the Great Depression. He is barely doing enough stories to get by. He meets Peter a man who is just fallen to the Great Depression. Peter changes Whit’s life in so many ways and shows him there is still humanity in the world and maybe even a chance for a man to find love.
This is a very beautiful story. I find I love this era. The way the author describes things so simply but elegantly; I felt as if I were there in the bread lines or there in the hotel with all the homeless. It is also one of those stories with some deeper meaning. You really should read it. It’s free so what do you have to lose?
I highly recommend this if you like depression era stories, reporters, love, hope for life and an all-around good story.
