In Response To: The Gift: ( How I Got Over ) ()
"Stella's story is off to a good start. It captured and held my attention immediately.
I do have a couple of questions/comments of a "technical" nature. (1) If the year was 1946, Elvis could not have been off fighting in a war, as World War II was over in 1945, and the Korean War did not start until 1950. (2) If Stella was three years old in 1946, why was she 13 in 1957? I realize that until her birthday, she would still have been 13, but it seems inconsistent without further details showing that what happened in 1957 was earlier in the year than the event which opened the story in 1946."
Keep these good comments coming!
