A tough read
Every so often I read a title in the Kindle Store to save you from the experience. The following is a clip from a short story titled Seize Fire. Perhaps the author meant Cease Fire, but I’m not making any assumptions about this piece.

Exiting the Evil King’s chambers, the special messenger traveled in disguise as a priest. A few minutes later, he came into view of the front door. A common servant girl among one hundred elite soldiers recognized the priest’s visage as that of a VIP prisoner.
“Recapture the escaping prisoner!” she shrieked to the warriors.
With great stealth and speed, the messenger battled the guards hand to hand. He sprang through their midst. Then he turned and retreated through the front door. After a burst of energy, he raced from the stronghold into the city streets.
The wily messenger navigated past the wicked city’s marketplace. The frantic palace soldiers alerted the city officers. Soon, every armed man was on the watch for the escaped prisoner. The Evil King heard the news, yet he did nothing but sit on his throne and laugh endlessly.

I’m grateful I’m not a language arts teacher. There’s just not enough red ink for all I want to express.

The women of Hope River trust midwife Patience Hester, whose skill in delivering babies is known for miles around. But though the Great Depression is behind them, troubles are not, for Europe is at war…and it can only be a matter of time before the U.S. enters the fray.
And while some are eager to join the fight, Patience’s husband, Daniel, is not. Daniel is a patriot—but he saw too much bloodshed during the First World War, and has vowed never to take up arms again.
His stance leaves Patience and their four children vulnerable—to the neighbors who might judge them, and to the government, who imprison Daniel for his beliefs.
