Comments A Place Called Lonesome

  • Jesseca Wheaton

    I'm so excited to introduce my new short story! It takes place in 1944, just after the battle of Normandy. It's a bit over 3,000 words. Coming to Kindle later this week! :)

    Once again, Miss Wheaton has dealt a near-fatal blow to my emotions . . . and this time I don't know if I'll recover!I loved this short little story! It immediately grabs you from the very first sentence. I love the almost-poetic writing style the author used. Though short, this really strike a chord within your heart! I was in tears throughout the later half. I loved how it portrayed that (view spoiler)[ not all German soldiers were complete creeps, which is a rather common misconception, I thi [...]

    Although I haven't read widely in the genre, I would describe myself as a fan of short stories. I like to see what an author can paint on the small canvas of just a few thousand words. I'm pleased to say that the author, in this case, used her canvas to the maximum, and created a poignant, bittersweet portrait of three ordinary people caught in the paradox of war. If I were to offer one critical point, it would be regarding the title, which is great on its own, but in my opinion, didn't really h [...]

    Five stars really doesn't do this book the justice it deserves! My only complaint was that it wasn't longer. As usual with Miss Wheaton's books, it's a beautiful, sweet, sad, heartwarming, amazingly written story, about a dying soldier left alone on a foreign battlefield. Even though it's only a short story, there was still a twist in it which I really hadn't been expecting. Definitely a must-read for anyone who loves war stories!


  • Kellyn Roth

    It is not fair that I, a girl who never cries, should have to cry so much. Between alpha reading A Question of Courage and reading this book, these last few days have given me wet eyes and a broken heart.It's not that I mind books that give me lots of emotions. I love them, in fact. They're my favorite kind. But but it's simply not fair. I'm emotional exhausted, mmkay, Miss Wheaton!? No more! Write about ponies and rainbows; I can't handle this anymore.Really, though, Jesseca, don't you ever s [...]

    Review to come once I am emotionally stable again. . .


  • Faith

    Ahh, what a beautiful short story! <3 A Place Called Lonesome is a tale of a man who's been left behind. The one you would be least likely to expect comes to his aid and shows him mercy. It's sweet and sad, heartbreaking and beautiful. *cries* The ending was probably my favorite, coming in close behind the chat between the guys. How good can shine through the darkness, and broken hearts be mended *hugs the story and all the charries* Amazing! <3 Definitely recommended! Favorite quotes "We' [...]


  • Olivia

    I love short stories because the effect is so much deeper. From the beginning of this one, the description pulls in the reader. You immediately care about Danny and his condition. When Marcus appeared on the scene, I smiled. I love stories that show the heart of German soldiers during the war who were just like any other person. This is an emotional read, but well worth the couple minutes of your time :)The only down-side was that Marcus' ancestry wasn't very evident in his dialogue. Also, it is [...]


  • Rebekah Duncan

    So soooo sad. This little story is very poignant, and accurately describes the horrors and ironies of war. It's so touching!! <3~I received this story in exchange for an honest review~


  • m a r y l i z

    // Re-Read December 2017 //The main reason I read this was because I needed a quick read to reach my new goal for the year. xD But I'm happy to report that Jesseca's story is just as poignant and powerful as ever. Such an important book and one that I will likely return to in the future. <3///Somehow, Jesseca made me cry twice within the span of 3,000 words. THIS LADY IS SKILLED.A Place Called Lonesome packs an emotional punch and really makes you think about the effect WWII had on people--ev [...]


  • Maddy

    Wow. What a sweet story. I am blown away that the author was able to make such a beautiful and touching story with only 3,000 words. I was drawn in the first sentence. The authors writing style is absolutely amazing. It was so pleasant to read. There was so much emotion put into this story and I loved it so much. The ending was probably my favorite, so sweet but sad! *sobs* I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading other writings by this author.


  • Rebekah Morris

    It took me about 10 minutes to read this short story. It was touching, sweet, heartbreaking and real. While not a long story, this author knows how to weave a good tale.I enjoyed it.


  • Karis

    Wow! This is such a sweet and moving short story. Please read it! It gives such a personal touch to the sacrifice of so many men on D-day, June 6, 1944. I quite nearly started full-out crying while reading it, knowing that while Danny was just a fictional character, there were many real “Dannys” who gave their lives dying inglorious deaths on the beaches of Normandy, defending their homelands and fighting for the freedom and peace that we have today. I loved how this short story showed how w [...]


  • R.A.

    Oh my goodness! This was apsolutely amazing!!! Ahhhhhh! It swept me away at the beginning and didn't let me go until the end! So many feels in only a few pages - I loved it! My throat tightened up at the end, but oh my, was it good! I'm so glad I read it!Now it's your turn!*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review


  • Mikayla

    This was an amazing short story. I teared up once (Which I rarely ever do). Jesseca Wheaton's talent really came out stong in this story.


  • Jessica

    Wow. When Jesseca Wheaton starts telling a story, you stop everything else, and pick up some tissues. This was sad, so sad, but the amazing type of sad that makes you wonder how words can do that. I fail to understand how a few pages pack such emotional punch.What I really like about A Place Called Lonesome is that it’s real. It doesn’t glorify war, or pretend that horrific stories always have happy endings. It’s not a feel-good story, but a true story. The final paragraphs were a thought [...]


  • Angela R. Watts

    A Place Called Lonesome is one of the best things I've ever read. God's Love was shown in such a true way with war and pain and grief where's God? That's a question we all ask. How can we have peace and love in the big bad world? We can have it because of Jesus. Through it all, HE loves us. This little story made me cry because it was done so well because the truth is, God is with us. The message of His Love must be shared and this story did just that.


  • Emily

    Review coming soon. =)


  • Chloe (aka Crystal)

    A wonderful short story that made my eyes water. <3


  • Hanna

    Well, that was quick. It was also kind of mean, in my opinion. I always do take the side of the Germans. But it was well-written, and powerful. I'm not sure how to write a detailed review, since it was so short. What I can say is this: the characters were developed very well, and it portrayed the sides of war where there's no clear side of 'good and evil'.


  • RebekahAshleigh

    "A Place Called Lonesome" is a short story set in 1944. Although it was short it was a good, sweet story, but a little sad too.


  • Deborah

    There is no words to describe the emotions I felt while reading this. The beauty of every word, the love for every character, the truth of every moment. World War 2 was a very gruesome time. Especially the battle at Normandy. Jesseca takes a whole different direction in bring the effects of that day to light. I was in awe throughout the whole of this short story. My only regret is that it wasn't longer. Be forewarned that the tears will flow. (It's worth it though ;))
