Prudence is screwed.

Take that, Prudie. Fall in love with the pretty black man. ]

I like how you open with a diary excerpt every time; and you make the POV transition work, too, which few people manage.

And was the reference to 'Sense and Sensibility', with Prudence and Carolina acting as a variation on Elinor and Marianne, deliberate? If so, wonderful idea.

Oh, and I should have said earlier: I was very impressed with the title: very subtle.

You're probably doing this already, but I think reading some novels from this time period could help with your dialogue? Some phrases seem a little modern.

All best,

Jean

This is a very promising concept for a story. I am very curious as to how you will develop it. I love Carolina already, and I can't wait to read about Prudence's change of heart.

For now it's fine; perhaps in a rewrite you could flesh it out a bit? More descriptions of the plantation and the house, for example? A careful proofread would filter out the occasional spelling mistake and some of the repeated phrases.

Just a tiny bit of historical, 'know-your-place' nit-picking on my part: Prudence, being the lady you have made her, would never say 'what in Hell's name'; and I'm not sure Mr. Carter would stand for a slave presuming to call his daughter 'not bad-looking' in front of him.

Other than that, very well done!

Best wishes,

Jean

This is a very interesting story ideer, I think. :D I love reading about Civil War era stories, especailly those involving the South. :) Please keep writing this!

If you need any help with it, I'd be happy to give it.

I enjoyed it a lot. But I did notice something that seemed off. Prudence is the daughter of a plantation owner, which is considered one of the elite class because the south depended on slaves for their economy, and she said that she copied prayers into her journal. So why did she say "what in hell's name"? Being the proper lady you wrote her to be?

Best of Luck,
