Well here's one more old chap waiting for an update (hoping for the plural of that really..). You have a natural flair for story telling. Conversations and use of language really fits the time frame and characters and the descriptions of both character design and personality as well as events and emotions is bloody brilliant. Almost like a pro I'd say! Except they tend to sprinkle in more difficult/complex words and metaphors, their description is more deftly weaved into the story and in a less direct manner, and their sentence composition tends to be more varied.
Though I have a question. Perhaps I've not read the story properly, but I'm wondering is Jeanie still 14? If so it's a bit young for my liking... Though romance of such complexity at that age is not implausible, it seems more realistic for her to be around 16 or 17.
Overall, it's an amusing tangle of emotions to read about. I hope you keep writing and feed my hunger for more! Update ASAP!

I hope there is more to come!

That was quite entertaining.
The only thing I had a problem with was that there was no description of the character's physical features.
Other than that, I must say that your first chapter was rather well.

Your story has been entertaining/lovely right down to the end. I can't wait to see what will happen next-especially Mr. Hammond's fate!
Hope you'll post soon! ;)

You write so beautifully. I know everyone has a different voice (in writing) but yours differed from the normal. It goes well with the period you are dealing with. Also, I am looking forward to find out whether the Rose Boy will have any significance in Jeanine's later life.

NO! not a cliffhanger! It was getting to the best part!
| S. J. Wintering chapter 1 . 6/14/2008
Yes, very good, I should think. This was written in a simple enough language, but kept me reading nonetheless. The human emotions are displayed well, and the characters themselves seem interesting, though I will have to read more to know them better.
I am a fan of 18th and 19th century England myself, and master these elegant person's behaviour and manner as accurately as I possibly can after reading countless books written in those times.
At the end of most my reviews, I sum up what I have said. In short; very good, and expect more reviews from me )

well i like it )
| koel18 chapter 4 . 5/10/2008
This is so beautiful!
The childish jealousy,Jeanie's and Jorie's respective personalities, Mrs. "Cathy" and her daughter- all of these are portrayed so compellingly that I am lost for words. Best chapter yet!

You are a pretty good writer, you know.:)
Loved everything-your characterisations, the dialogue(which is not as formal as I'd expect it to be,yet doesn't seem jokey or out of place.)
Though I thought the last paragraph was not snappy enough compared to the rest of your writing...
Anyhow, me likes!

Wsheew, you weren't lyin about this being a long chapter! I felt like it was dragging a little bit toward the middle of the chapter, but a lot of the things you brought up seemed important to the grand scheme of the story. I am looking forward to what is coming next, and I hope you won't make us wait quite as long!

love i liked it awesome face...there were some typos, but overall it was good.
"She did not know, however, that Jack had hoped that she would come, for he hadn’t talked to her for an extended span of time, and he wished to make amends by conversing with her alone, in private."- that sentence is sort of awkwardly constructed ( i know its not a run-on, im not tony)
"You and your innocence gaze."- i think it should be innocent
and there was one mre where you put he said he said and i can't find it...
good though...i'm glad you decided to write again )

Very interesting chapter. It has been a long time since you've updated, and I wish I had the time to go back and read some of your older chapters, because I forget what has happened in the past, I have a vauge recollection, but it's been a while. Anyway, this was an interesting chapter like I said, I'm confused about both Jack and Gerards' regard for Jeanie. I hope your next update will come sooner than this one did, because I am very curious to find out what happens next.
