Really unusual, in good way
This is a story about a love affair with a community, a natural environment, a lifestyle, a dream. And, there’s a romantic element, amongst the humans in the story. Very unusual context for the story: a small, privately owned FL key island. I understand living in a beautiful, unique place you love...needing to make a living in a remote place, but not wanting to completely destroy what makes your community and natural environment special...not wishing to destroy what you love, in order to sustain it. It’s a sad world, in which financial pressures to capitalize on the sacred abound.
Good story but oddly written
The story is fine, it’s not really that believable but I had a bigger issue with the fact it was clearly about one character but written in third person.
