Short even for a novella, Bitter Harvest , nonetheless fulfills its goal presenting a tightly woven complete story of love and honor. The primary characters, especially Claire, are finely drawn with clear motivation for their actions. The reader feels Claire’s pain when Jack is murdered and knows she has no doubt what she has to do. Jack is the sort of man any reader would want to know and have as a friend.
Did I have any problem with this novella/short story? Not at all. I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it for a time when you need something quick but very satisfying to read. This is the type of story which could easily make its way into folklore and be told again and again especially around Halloween.
