The daily journal of country veterinarian David Appleton describes the calls for his services, the mundane details of his days, and important revelations relating to the shooting and near death of his son in a hunting accident. Narrator William Dufris plays the part of David with a perfect balance of melancholy and raw emotion. He captures the essence of a father’s worst nightmare, David’s relief at his son’s recovery, and his emotional struggle when the shooter can’t be found. The story isn’t all dark—there are lovely moments of warmth and humor. The journal format could make the written story seem choppy or flat, but Dufris’s narration adds an extra dimension.
