Review of "Walking Home" by Catherine Krahe

"Walking Home" by Catherine Krahe was posted in Daily Science Fiction on January 4, 2013.  "A beekeeper, scarred by war, is miraculously reunited with his son who was kidnapped during the war, and adopts two foreign boys who befriended and escaped with his son."  The editors warn that this is a disturbing, adult tale.  It is.

Ms. Krahe has written a beautiful story of how war and soldiering changes people.  All must find ways to cope with the psychological trauma.  Some do better than others.  There is also an important theme about children simply being children, no matter what their country of origin.  6 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
