I love how John refuses Reinette and kicks her out!!! Yay John!!! And I'm so glad Rose was witness to the scene.
Author's Response: Thank you! It was about time Reinette got the boot. And though Reinette's words were spiteful, it was good for Rose to hear John's response.
I am wiggling with anticipation. Will there be Scotland for Christmas?
Author's Response: There will be indeed! :) Thank you!
Enjoyed my second read through as much as the first - expert pacing and vivid, compelling characters. Can't wait to see what you've planned for them!
Author's Response: I appreciate that so much! Thank you! Now I've gotta get back to work on these two... ;)
Yeah!!! Thank you so much for reposting!
Author's Response: Y'all make me glad I did. :) Thank you for reading!
Bria is right. I'm very excited too! Glad to have you back. I've been rereading some of your previous works while you were taking your well deserved break you're a great writer. Thank you for sharing with us!
Author's Response: Thank YOU for reading and giving such kind encouragement. :)
Wahooo! Thank you again for reposting this. I know I speak not just for myself when I say I'm very excited. :)
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so very much! *hugs* It feels good to be focused on it again.
Yes yes! We are getting to the good bits! I can't wait to see how the story moves forward!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, nearly there now!
Just as emotional the second time around!! Amazing writing.
Author's Response: Thank you so very much! :)
So much emotion in the two chapters tonight, I can actually feel what they are going through. I'm so glad she didn't take the money, didn't run, so glad she is trusting John now. Lovely lovely progress
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It's been a rough road for both of them to get to this point, but Rose is finally making significant progress, with more to come.
Here's the chapter I was waiting for! Although I will say it again, damn it, it always ends up being the horse!
Author's Response: Thank you! But yes, why must it always be the horse??!! That was a tough scene. :/
I could actually strangle Reinette.
Author's Response: Be my guest!! ;D
That was beautiful. Rose is making needed progress and John is so wonderful with her.
Author's Response: Thank you! Rose is definitely taking steps in the right direction. At last!
*Safe* and then *I'll never hurt you*
Major squeeeee ❤️
Maybe there is hope at the end of the tunnel?
Author's Response: Words Rose very much needed to hear. There is indeed a light ahead! :)
Is there no evil that woman won't stoop to, grrrrr, poor poor Rose and John. Hopefully their recent strengths together will be enough to get them through the night.
Author's Response: Reinette never fails to stoop to new lows here, unfortunately. :/
And here's where things go to hell in a hand basket real quick! Eagerly awaiting the update!
Author's Response: They do indeed! As they say, it's about to hit the fan.
