I was given a copy of this short story (2,220 words) in exchange for my honest opinion and my only regret in reading it, is that it was too short! I'd have loved for this to be so much longer, just because it did a fabulous job in drawing me in so quickly, but it does work perfectly in the format it was written with a neat wrap-up at the end. The author managed to paint a dismal setting easily imagined, with that ray of hope and goodness trying to pierce the foggy veil. Well done!
