I actually read this story to it's end. The characters lacked compassion and insight. Noone learned about themselves or others. There was no hope or understanding leaving the impression that life was futile and, perhaps killing and death was an acceptable solution. The author drew very vivid descriptions that definetly evoked an emtional response from the reader.
Tried to give the story a chance but the poor writing would not allow it
Review: "Desert Harvest" by Wando Wande was a quick short interesting read. It is about the Coldfield family living in the Arizona desert. The wife leaves the family and the older daughter who is a teenager must step up and take care of the two younger ones. With constant reminders that the mother is a whore..what will come of this horrible family life for the girl named Millie? It seems like everyone is against her mom...even her sister..Liza referring to her as a whore. Millie wants her mother to come back home....but is this possible? Millie father teaches her how to shot a pistol...Was this a good thing? Well, you must pick up this read to find out just what is in store for Millie as she kills...well... this is where I say you must pick up this read and find out what all is going down with "Desert Harvest." In the end you will find out what happens to Millie's mom when she goes to get her mom and what her father Bill will do. This was a short quick read that really turned out to be interesting read and I would recommend "Desert Harvest" to you as a good read.
