-- Review -- Cracked Sky by Ben Eads
Cracked Sky is an emotional tale for anyone with children, but, if you have a daughter, like I do, it is especially moving. A parent's most horrid nightmare is the loss of their child, something I don't particularly want to think about, but most of us do at some point. Eads forces us into that world, making us feel as if the unthinkable has happened.
And that's what makes this story (and the writer) great.
If there is a shortcoming with this tale, it's with the length. I wanted more.
For all the parents out there - hell, for anyone that wants an insight into real loss, do yourself a favour and pick this one up.
I'll sure remember it for quite some time.
