David, your book is beautifully written. What a joy it was to see our ancient kin, all who once lived in the same house that you , Billy and I lived in for 18 years plus. You made all the characters with all their struggles, doubt, pain and actions so real. I really felt connected with all of our ancient kin. Just think, they all ate, slept, and lived in the same house that we lived in. Ella, Della, Sam, and Thomas all slept upstairs where we once slept. And they came down those narrow stairsteps as we did many of times. And the rabbit, I,ve seen him many of times when I would come home from a date and see him sitting on the first or second rock step. When I got out of the car, he would run toward the cemetery. When I would go rabbit hunting on the farm, I was never able to jump a rabbit in the cemetery. Maybe there is a reason for that. Our ancient kin are all gone but not forgotten because you have reminded us of our connection to each other. A great book.
