Have You News of my Boy Jack?

By: Nicole Armas

Status: Completed


It's been three years since the war, The Great War, has ended. Since then I am left struggling to readjust to civilian life once more. Although I had three years to do just that; I still can't seem to find myself. You know what I mean? Before the war, it would have been different. I knew who I was. If I was asked the question it would have been easy for me to answer. I am Christian Abbott of Baden, Ontario. I'm just a simple 18-year-old farm boy who wants to go out and see the world because Lord knows I'm getting sick and tired of Wilmot Township.

    Okay, so i don't normally read this kind of story but I have got to say this was really really good. The emotional depth you go into is fascinating and the way the story is told is awesome. I felt sorry for the main character, even though you know it's only a fictional person this story still sparks feelings in a person. Great job and I will be looking for more of your stories Britta

    This piece is absolutely stunning. It is both tragic and romantic. It is spectacularly written, close to how a friend would tell you one of their stories. The church was still such a prominent force back then, and you displayed just how dangerous the relationship between the main character and Jack was. You can tell just how much his loss had impacted him, as when regaling the story, it was the loss of his love that he spoke of, and not the horrors of the war that was going on. This is such a beautiful piece, and I'll be sure to be looking through more of your work.
