Love the suspense
Did you ever cry during the book when you wrote it? My favorite part was when at the end of chapter 8 when Ma sees Marty with Shiloh and then the chapter ends. I absolutely love the suspense. Also why is Judd so mean, was he the person who was supposed to be mean to Shiloh?
Some of the scenes brought tears to my eyes. If Judd hadn’t been mean–mistreating his dogs, what would the plot have been? Something has to happen in a book–something has to change.
