"I will write instantly, and relieve them from the anxiety they must feel," he says, when he recovers from his illness.

Also, all of Braswell 's characters, both the old and the new, had one major flaw: lack of characterization. It 's as if Braswell expected the reader to use and be satisfied with prior knowledge. I was not satisfied.
My family and I went through a lot of horrid situations and still manage to smile and have our moments and beat our economic stress with the love we have as a family.
