I sometimes think that looking at SOL's home page is like taking the first steps into a goldfield. Will I find a little dust today, will a small nugget come to my attention or will I stumble across untold riches?

A few days ago, from the Stream, my eye was caught by the title of this story and the blurb was sufficiently tempting, to persuade me to download and read it. What a delightful nugget of pure gold it turned out to be.

Boy meets girl/girl meets boy/do they live happily ever after? Must read story to find out. There are a lot of stories like that, written by many authors, some good and some less so. Well let me tell you that this is a really good one, perhaps one of the best that I have ever read. Why? It is well written, in good grammatical English and has been carefully edited/proofed. The characters are well drawn and very credible. The plot is just that little bit different from what one might expect and has been well thought out.

Should you read it? Yes you should. You will not be disappointed.
