Guarding Lucas - Mitchell E. Sanford An interesting and different contribution to the LHNB event.This is not a 'traditional' love story or romance, it also deals with some very serious and heavy issues. I appreciate that this story is a little outside the norm.I also liked seeing what a difference Lucas made, that was a nice touch.I think I would have liked an epilogue, just a bit more positive at the end. pretty much everything that can go wrong does, all the main characters die, the ending is hopeful, but not in a traditional sense.Lucas life is depressing and sad, his history was difficult and dear heavens Lisa, gah...sniff. I did wonder why Pat and Lisa called Lucas about his dad, but that didn't really matter, I guess.
