Force of Nature by Bodie Parkhurst
Force of Nature is a short story about the life of a woman and her man. They run a farm together, go to church, raise a family. Along the way though, they start to separate and this makes her very unhappy. She finds comfort in the old ways, the ways her family have followed for generations. This is okay until it comes to a climax when the minister's wife gets involved. What will her husband do now?
This is a very well written story, with enough detail for a short story - although I am always happy with more. I would love for this story to be developed further, a bit more with the husband and wife, family, and of course, Russell the bull.
For a short read, this was wonderful and definitely recommended by me.
