I absolutely love this story. It has flies descriptions, loads of drama, horsies ;) and a great plot line. Your characters are well developed with great physical descriptions. Five stars! Hope you continue it soon!

Wow, I really feel like a jerk... I am sorry I have not been keeping up with reviewing your chapters as I read them, but I have been enjoying the story thus far. As for relating descriptions, I had said before that the mother reminded me of Anjelica Huston, but I wasn't talking about the way she looked, I was more referring to her attitude. However, if I had to give her a face, I would say Rebecca De Mornay. Perhaps Julia Stiles for Heather, and maybe, a really big maybe, Elizabeth Gillies for Kate. Of course, Alexandra Daddario seems like a good choice as well. For Eleanor all I could come up with was that cute little girl from the movie We Bought A Zoo; Maggie Elizabeth Jones (I had to look it up). Don't lose heart, there is an audience out there for your stories, and I believe your hard work will pay off in the end.

Very good departure chapter. And don't worry about the spacing issue. It's still readable and enjoyable

I really love this story. It's the first I've read on Fictionpress, and the quality has given me a really positive impression of this website as a whole. I'm very excited to read the next chapters, especially her signing up.
The character of Kate is really intetsting to me. Though you see the boyish, dress-opposed heroine a lot in YA fiction now, it's not often you see that placed in such a different time period. And Kate is also much more than a character cliche. She's very real to me.
Congratualtions on your amazing writing.

You definitely paint an amazing picture. I’m not sure why, but for some reason I just feel like Caroline Peterson is going to be one of my favorite characters in your story. (Apart from Katherine of course) Like I said, I’m not sure why just yet, but there’s something about the way you introduced her in this chapter, that caught my attention. Also, this may seem weird but the mother reminds me of Anjelica Huston.

Good imagery, believable environments and characters, and the story flows smoothly. I don't see any reason that this story wouldn't be published. Especially if you continue on like this.
