The Farmer's Daughter by lichtyd

Description: Kevin Butcher, a former U. S. Marine, is trying to finish college while working as a contractor. He takes a job several counties distant and rents a room from a local Mennonite farmer. Of course, the farmer has an attractive daughter. But the son of a local gangster wants the farmer's daughter and will do anything to have her. Note: Some of the characters are religious, but this is not a story about religion. There is some violence and a threat of rape. This is not a stroke story!

I don't often review stories that aren't completed. But this one is well worth reading and I am interested in how it turns out. Hopefully "and they lived happily ever after" but there is enough doubt I can't wait for the next chapter(s).

There isn't much to discuss. The characters include a stock hero, a former marine almost finished with a degree in engineering, who rents a room in a Mennonite family farmhouse. The heroine is a farmer's daughter, but the characters, and the father and mother are drawn with enough depth that when they are on stage it is interesting to read about them, too. There is a sufficiently evil villain and the daughter's younger brother is worth a look.

The numbers are eight for plot, an A. I have seen much more elaborate plots, but so far everything works just fine. The Technical score is also an eight, I didn't see any thing wrong but A is a good score the way I handle the numbers. Appeal to reviewer is also an eight, an A. Maybe I ought to score it a little higher, I must like it a lot to start reviewing it before its complete. I have faith it will only get better.

Plot: 8 | Technical Quality: 8 | Appeal to Reviewer: 8
