First Sentence Friday! CHAPTER NINETEEN

When writing a story about suffering, hardship and deprivation, there needs to be a balance of good with bad, or readers will be slap worn out (and as the writer, so would I) if it was all negative, with nothing good happening.  I love, love, love stories where characters are thoroughly challenged, where they go through some really tough times, but I also realize for a story to have balance, and to convey something of a realistic, true to life experience, there must come a turn towards something positive.  A reprieve, if you will.

The Stampers finally have that, if only for a while.

Chapter Nineteen

We stood a few minutes soaking in the applause and feeling right proud of ourselves.
