Sunset on Turtle Lake is a short, but touching, story that gives you Sam's story. He changed when his father died, and now his mother is also suffering from a terminal illness. He has tried to do what he thinks is best, but has to admit that it didn't work. Instead, he takes his mother back to their home for Christmas. It is also so that she can die there, but he refuses to admit to that part.
The relationship between Sam, Ian, and Gloria (the mother) are all very good, but there just wasn't enough detail for me. I would have loved to have gotten to know these characters a bit more.
Nevertheless, this is a story that may tug on your heartstrings as it did mine. It is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt your reading flow. Absolutely recommended, it's just not very long.
