    1. LHNB Story released 10.8.133.5 stars rounded upTim, discharged from the army suffering from PTSD and the after effects of a traumatic brain injury has been drifting around looking for work and, more importantly, somewhere he feels comfortable. He washes up in a small rural town and looks for work at local stables, but they don't want a cowboy. Walking out to a motel late at night he's almost run down when a passing van blows a tyre. Amy, the middle aged woman driver takes him to her busy home wh [...]

    2. Another great contribution to the LHNB picture prompt event.Tim has been drifting from place to place, after leaving the military with a disability and learning to live with his PTSD.He grew up with horses and really wants to be around them again, it gives him a sense of peace and soothes him.He finds a place he thinks just might be where he might be able to settle.This is a very short story, and it's a barely HFN, but I enjoyed it, it's got an 'understated' way of telling of Tim's feelings and [...]

    3. A beautifully-written little short story featuring an itinerant veteran with PTSD finding a home with a horse family who lost their husband/father in the war. I liked the MCs and the family a lost and this scenario had the potential to be taken much futher, so perhaps there will be a follow-up. I really enjoyed Kate's way with descriptive prose and I will look for more of her work in the future.

    4. The prose --that's the 5th star here. It was very evocative and beyond the norm. It just flowed really well - I felt like I was there in that small town. Lovely and warm and really beautiful. This was a complete hit for me.

    5. *accidentally deleted off GR shelves, had to re-enter*The story flows well and is easy to read. I liked the MCs, but I didn't fall in love with them. They didn't make me laugh, or cry. They were a cute couple, and I cared about them, but I wasn't attached to them and I didn't really feel any chemistry between them. It felt like emotions were tamped down and everything was happening in a fog. The secondary characters felt flat, and that contributed to the overall feeling of distance.Then I'd read [...]

    6. Tim an ex soldier now living with PTSD after an accident he cant get himself together. Comes across this women in need of help she offer shelter for him. There he meets her son Ari Loving family. ANd horse he loves farm life. maybe he has a life on this farm with loving familyort sweet wanted more.

    7. This was a sweet read? I loved this quoteAnd Tim wanted to stay. The trees still held their branches open wide in a generous welcome, and the streets still breathed an old, solid air of stability and home. He wanted to know Ari, to learn everything about him and make it his. Make Ari his.

    8. I really enjoyed Tim and Ari, and also Ari's mother. I liked how this dealt with Tim's "invisible injury" and I just really liked the pace of this story. Very sweet and hopeful. Thanks for a great story!

    9. Tim feels like he must constantly keep moving but suddenly he finds himself in a place that calms him and a person who seems to make it worth the effort to stick around.

    10. Well written short story in which you get a good feel for the characters and a glimpse of their possible future together

    11. Sweet and touching. Nice interpretation of the photo. Thank you Kate Pavelle for donating your story, your time and your talent.

    12. This story had a slow build but was enjoyable for a short. [NOTE: I rate most writing event stories (free reads) 4 or 5 stars because of my appreciation of the author's participation.]

    13. I liked Tim. He was sweet and only wanted to get on with his life, preferably around horses. Ari was tougher to understand he faded in and out of the story. I liked Amy when she first turned up, but after her son was introduced she disappeared. I would have wanted stronger chemistry between Tim and Ari. Besides their ogling each other there isn't much of a connection. And the end left me feeling something was missing. I would say it was more a HFN, and personally, I'm not too fond of those.

    14. Let's see Tim was a drifter, just tryin to run away from the demons the military caused him. PTSD, didn't seem like he knew much about it but jumping at loud noises and things like that; he just dealt with them. Driften to a new town he meets a little older lady when she blows a tire and it scares him into a ditch, he helps her change her tire and she takes him in for the night.He's a "cowboy" dunno about a cowboy really, he likes horses and wears a cowboy hatif that makes you a cowboy then I re [...]

    15. This seems more like the beginning of a story. A good one, to be sure, but it's definitely not their whole story.
