This is rich with atmosphere and has extremely vivid descriptions. I was completely engaged throughout. Masterfully told.

Reminded me of "Peace Child" in some ways. Only one "fix" caught my eye. You meant "scar" not "scare." Good read.
You drew me in right away, and held me throughout with this simple, yet powerful story. You weave enough history in to give the story great depth, yet do not leave the reader overwhelmed with complexity. Sad, though,that it would take so long, and an eminent threat to his rescuers to prompt this overdue reunion--but perhaps that is a story unto itself.

Wow! This was SO good. I was completely captivated, and I LOVE how you tied the title in at the end. Awesome writing...LOVED it!
It's obvious that you really put your mind into the world's and characters that you create as you write them.

I too wondered if this was completely fictional or based on true events.

Congratulations on your first place win and EC! Awesome to see you up there at the top! :)
Super congratulations Amy! Well deserved 1st Place and EC. :-) xoxo

I was wondering how the title would tie into the story, and the conclusion and the MC's name change was just perfect. Congratulations on placing first.
