'The Opportunity' reads very much like a modern day fairy tale or fable. We are treated to a world in which the norms are broken and consequences are not as you would expect. A lovely story to read.

I love this. It seems both a very old tale and sharply modern at one and the same time. It certainly has a lot to say about how men and women work each other! Thank you, Zdravka.

This story showed, with specifics and with time leaps, how much can be found within the spread of a lifetime. I loved that the three main characters were, at the end, the supporting cast of the future. Thank you for writing this.
