Review:Alopex says:
I feel sort of ridiculous saying this, but now that you've reached 1981 with your characters, I feel a little bit old. I just looked, and I left my first review on Unsinkable in June 2008, although I'd been reading it before that. That means it is closing in on four years since I first started reading about these characters. At the time, they were all teenagers, which makes it almost half their life spans, counting from this chapter. Now some of them have kids going to Hogwarts, and geez! Lol. It's really intriguing to see them all growing, though.

One thing that really strikes me about this chapter is that these characters have lived their entire adult lives so far during the war. It's just like Dunstan says . . . they don't know what it's like not to be in the midst of the war. It's been so much a part of their lives, shaping so many of their experiences and thoughts.

I felt sad for Dunstan and Gemma in this chapter, even though it's not so easy for me to relate to, not being at a point in my life where I'm at all interested in having children. Still, being in a circle of friends where each of them seems to have so many children must be quite difficult for them both. The ending with the puppies was heart-warming, though.

This was a beautiful little collection of short stories! I'm so glad you wrote these about the Unsinkable characters!

Author's Response: I find it odd to think of how long I've been writing Molly and her friends, not to mention the sheer number of wordcount I've devoted to her. You've been a steady reviewer since very early on! It has been a long time in their chronology. Ending this with baby Harry seemed appropriate, and it's interesting to think of how those who'd lived all that time with the war reacted after it was over so abruptly. I really hope you get a chance to read Cherry Blossoms, I'd love to hear what you think of fully adult Hattie and her family in that.

Dunstan and Gemma's predicament is not one I've dealt with, but I tried to write it accurately. It's a hard feeling for him, and poor Gemma. It's tough to be the only ones without kids when you want some of your own. But they'll be okay. They wind up breeding Yorkies and live the rest of their lives down the street from Petula and her family, visiting back and forth all the time (though keeping the dogs away from poor allergic Jeffrey). Petula's kids are closest in age to Bill and Charlie - in fact, what with birthdays falling the way they do, Bill and Jeffrey are in the same year at Hogwarts, and so are Charlie and Charlotte.

Anyway, thank you so much for all the wonderful reviews! I really appreciate it, and loved reading them. :)
