|Absolutely brilliant ghost story...
The plot was engaging and complex, especially for a story story. The characters are well drawn and "lively."
I absolutely loved the poem, that appeared in the story. The references to Samhein and the ancient traditions that acompanied it, gave the story validity, as well as providing a backdrop for the plot.
I found this to be a truly enchanting and warm story about family and family traditions. It is hopeful in its' outlook on life and the afterlife.
My only suggestion is that I think the first couple of paragraphs seemed a bit akward to me, and could possibably use a better hook... although I am not one of those who think a hook in the begining should be a prerequiste for a story. But we seem to be in the era of the short attention span and the lazy reader.
In conclusion, I think, "Harvest," is a wonderful and engaging drama. I say "drama" because it was almost as if I was watching a charming play as I read it. A play with engaging characters and a well thought out plot.
