This one was a new year gift from a friend, and what a lovely gift it turned out to be. Often enough when I read a novella in this genre (or a short story) which seemed rushed, incomplete, etc, I tend to think that if only the author had more pages to work with, he/she would been able to develop the plot, characters in more depth. But sometimes a story comes along which tells me that the skilled author is able to say everything she wants in whatever amount of pages she has, I think this is one of those stories. While certainly I would not mind even more in depth look at the relationship between Greg and Farron and their struggles with their respective faiths, I liked what I got. I thought it was well written, memorable and ending was just enough HFN to feel real.
