Excellent novella (or long short story) with a fab ending. I just wish it were longer. A review: https://forwinternights.wordpress.com...

3,5/5 rounded up to 4 because the ending was incredible, blew my mind!! Like WOW. I might read this again because that final twist is the kind that makes you want to read the story again once you know what was going on

I was glad I got this one free as I would have felt I did not get my money's worth if I had purchased...
