    Tender story layered throughout with traces of danger. Beautifully done.

    This is a beautifully vivid moment that I’ve come back to read and reread several times over the past few days.

    NIcely done. It took me back to some of my youth and the mixed feelings I had, wanting to be dad’s tomboy, yet struggling with the whole hunting aspect of killing things I sometimes collected as pets.

    So many layers in such a brief space, childhood, love, death, whiskey, and the unavoidable scent of tragedy
