    I got this e book for free on I figured I have the time and it was for free so why not? I was pleasantly surprised with how much detail and depth the author included in the short amount of pages The characters were well developed and there was an ending to this story unlike some short stories that leave the story without any clear resolution Well I should take that back There is no clear resolution at the end However it leaves the reader with assumptions on how it will turn out An example I could think of right now will be the edited ending in Charles Dicken's The Great Expectations where Pip meets Estella again at the end and the readers can guess they get together but it is not definite what will happen Further I thought it was interesting how the author chose to show the ignorance of the higher class and the lower class It seemed to be a common thread that ties the two classes together In conclusion personally I think this short story was interesting and I would recommend it if anyone is interested in a short read with a little romance
