THE LEAVES ARE FALLING by Lucy Beckett
Story Feels: anxious in a good way, grateful for my life
Story Strengths: compelling protagonist, seamless time shifts, incredible description/narration
Story Goofs: some dialogue too lengthy, anti-climactic love story, asking too much of the reader to start over with another protagonist
Story Morals: growing up in a tradition and feeling the pull toward rationalism, common good vs. individual, where are the dead?
