Reviews for The Veil
AnonymousLily chapter 1 . 5/3/2012
Had to read this a few times before I saw how the end capped it. The outdoor imagery in the 2nd paragraph vividly set scene - lovely. The last sentence in paragraph 5 confuses me, am I just not understanding or is there a word missing? Maybe too many he's? It's hard to do a child's thought pattern! Really liked wording and imagery in Candy's paragraph. I would not have understood why they needed to see his grave until I read this. "Stubbornly in the cold" I take as a metaphor operating on numerous levels- the captain stubbornly remaining although dead, our human need for a physical marker for what's really not physical- like a soul.

Difficult issues handled beautifully.
