This is a truly thought provoking story with with interesting and well developed characters, along with a fascinating storyline.  The premise of the brothers not being human, possibly even alien, seemed laughable at first, yet as we meet them and witness their actions, it appears totally believable.  And the discussion about the concept of reincarnation and how it's presented could make believers out of the most ardent skeptics.  Thank you for this truly enjoyable tale.

Thanks @Bill W, I wrote this story some time ago and appreciate the kind review. I need to come up with another couple of anthology stories.

Excellent characterizations and a marvelous plot flow made this a wonderful read.  Depending on how deep your memories are it might also elicit a tear or two.  Great work Lomax61!  I actually read it twice in one sitting.

Response from the author:

Hi @Robben - thank you so much for that wonderful review. This style is very different from my usual offering, so I’m really pleased this resonated with you.
