aims80 chapter 38 . 12/15/2003
I have been pretty busy lately so I just had to catch up on the last four chapter and I am still loving this story. If I haven't mentioned before I also really like your writing style. Keep up the good work!

Tricky tricky. I thought I knew what was in that jewler's box and I was wrong! But Caleb's present, in a way, is almost more romantic than what I thought it was going to be.
And even though he didn't have the piece of jewelry I was expecting, what I wanted to see still happened! Now I'm happy.
But sad too, because I can read the writing on the wall. With so many weddings in the air, the end of the story can't be that far off, and I'll miss it.

Aw! That was such a great chapter. How romantic! Oh, I'm so in love with Caleb :) and I'm so happy with Desmond's news, he's finally going to marry Miss Delacroix, yay! Awesome chapter and now I can't wait for the next one _!

-Dances.- (: I'm so happy for the characters in your fantastic story, that I don't have words for a review. Well, congradulations; you've left someone speechless. xD

OH! Way to go Caleb! What a great chapter! I really love this story and it's so nice when you update. I hope you update pretty soon. Keep it up :)!
Silvestria chapter 37 . 12/8/2003
Oh, the atmosphere is chilly. But go Caleb. I admire everything he did in this chapter. Very Gryffindorish. ;)
Lisa chapter 37 . 12/8/2003
:D Yaay. It's about time Caleb stood up to Mrs. Hastings - that despicable scheming wench... And what about Caleb going in that jewelry store, eh? I think I know what's going to happen there... :
ONEthousandWORDs chapter 37 . 12/7/2003
I really like the ending to this, though the total control the Colonel exerts over his twenty year old nephew is a bit... much. I'm not sure that I like that. But I guess it all works. Keep it up! And the wad of bills, thoughts of Isabella and all... 'tis so beautiful! *tears up*
Ta-ta! ; Write/post more soon!
poohba chapter 37 . 12/7/2003
I'm so proud of Caleb! He's discovered his backbone at last.
Now... What's he doing in the jewler's shop? hmm?
ONEthousandWORDs chapter 36 . 11/30/2003
The idea of composing a message for Caleb on her window... And your phrasing (scrawl a meassage in the mist) was one of the best bits in the entire story. That is all of the story that I remember, so PLEASE keep it in. The more poetic nonsense like that you can stick in the better!
** “I was only doing what I thought was best for you at the time. I was only trying to—”
“Protect me.” The dark-haired man glanced up, briefly meeting his uncle’s eyes with an unusual mix of poignancy and understanding in his expression. “I know.” **
This is wonderful! It may just be me, but so far this is the best chapter that you have written. I wonder where it is building to... I shall read on so that I can find out. *grin*
I appreciated the Colonel's gift of the ring to Caleb. It was well written, in character on all sides, at a good moment in the plot, and furthered one of the many plots which you have twisted up into this story.
Adam's note was cute. I think that if I were you I would shorten it and have some signs of being written very hurriedly (not grammar or punctuation wise, but pieces of sentences and all the contractions possible while still keeping it appropriate to time and place). I like the plan you have explained in the letter/thing, but I don't know if you need to ezplain the whole thing here... But that part of it would really work either way. Your choice. And maybe it only works the way you already have it.
All in all, this is my favorite of your chapters. I also really liked the one with the drawing room scene. Good job, keep up the good work!
P. S. Also, treasure this review. I do not know if I will have the time to give you another true review (I belive this was the first I have ever given you) so all the rest will be like my former comments.

Interesting chapter title! I can only guess it refers to Adam's elopement. I suppose to this society, it would seem an idiotic act, but I'm just glad he's actually going through with marrying her.
I had this horrible thought, when Caleb found his room cleared out. I thought he was gone for good and Caleb would feel somewhat responsible, so he would feel obligated to make an honest woman of Audrey. (I shudder to think how this would complicate things.)
Now... I sense things are coming to a close. Adam and Audrey are getting married, Desmond and Madeleine seem to have things worked out, and Caleb's summer vacation is almost over. Something else has to happen with him and Isabella though. It would be VERY anti-climactic if this wonderful story were just to end with him packing up his trunks and going back to school. *hint, hint* _

Oh, Adam, Adam, Adam! Whatever shall we do with you? Brilliant, as always.
