This very nearly made me cry. It was so beautiful and simply so sad. I can't imagine what Hattie must be going through, but we all know it can't be anything good.

I absolutely adore, like I've said before, how you fit your OC's so well within the canon and give them ties to canon characters without it being over the top or displacing them from the 'canon' realm. It's amazing.

Just to clarify from the last chapter since there seemed to be some confusion - I was well aware that the Cattermoles were in the canon (if barely), but what I meant was you miraculously wove them in with your OC's in a way that I found convincing.

Your descriptions and the way that you wrote their emotions was so beautifully done. I absolutely loved that Reid was the one to comfort Hattie. It just was sweet and tender and I wanted to give them both a hug.

I also was glad that Hattie could finally get over her anger, so that she could move on through the grieving process. Not that it ever means that she'll forget her son, but she can still move on and get on with her life.

I found this chapter to be very realistic and very tragic, as well. Yet the ending seemed bittersweet.

I also wanted to mention how much I loved your descriptions of the cherry tree. I wish that it could have, at least, given her one blossom, but I think that it was better the way that you wrote it.

This was a gorgeous story full of depth and musing, and I really liked it. Very much so!

Don't worry about the name change confusion . . .some other people don't seem quite used to it, either. At least, not yet. :3


Author's Response: Reid has become Hattie's other best friend, her brother. Despite him being in such utterly different places in his life than her, they always remain close. He pretty much reserves any emotional depth he has left for Hattie, which is kind of a shame for his ex-wives.

I love cherry trees. The ones along the banks of the Potomac in Washington D.C. are gorgeous when they bloom. The cherry tree will bloom again, and Hattie will appreciate it even more, but it was the wrong time of year for it. It was definitely meant to be bittersweet.

I'm really glad you liked this story, and my characters. I'm pretty fond of the Unsinkable group myself, so it always makes me very happy when reviewers like them as well :) Thank for the review!
