I loved this. The whole story was so real: Harry's misgivings about starting his family, his realization that his past was abusive, his search for links to his past... And your epilogue was perfect. I love the idea of Harry reading the books to his own children. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for saying that the story was well done. I had no idea, when I started, whether I could write something worth reading or not. There is not much magic in this story; maybe that it why it seems real -- because it is something that could happen to anyone. The Bible says, "The truth will set you free," and in Harry's case, it did.
