Aww farmgirl, your chapters always leave me with feels!!

I love that with every chapter, we are drip-fed information about Sadie, and we see her open up a bit more, but we also understand the atrocities that she went through and the horrors of her past that she doesn't want to disclose to others. I think you write her well, and consistently. She is a character that I personally can see myself hugely caring about. She really seems to have got into my heart, and is making me feel ALL the feels! Farmgirl you've written too much of a good character! :P

Your description is really good. You have described a fantastic image that I was able to follow throughout the chapter, and it was written really well, it wasn't rushed or faltered at all. I especially like this simile that was involved in it-
"the memory slid away like sand through a sieve, leaving only Ginny Weasleys dark bedroom behind"
Really, really beautiful. Great job.

I actually LOVED how it was Bill that went and connected to Sadie. It made it feel very uncliche-y, and think as he is an older brother, that it was a really nice touch. I think his calm and helpful words were just what she needed, and you wrote that scene really well.

I did see a Brit-pick. You use 'realize' a few times, the'z' just needs to become an 's', and your dandy!

Argh.. so many feels. But honestly, so well written. You are doing a superb job, even writing this review makes me giddy :)

Grace :D

Author's Response: Well, your reviews leave me with feels as well! So thanks!

I'm so glad you are liking the slow reveal on Sadie's background. She's such a closed off person now it would feel wrong to shove it all out there at once - but I also don't want my readers to revolt.

You think she's consistent? YES! Thank you! I so needed to hear that. And it really, really makes me happy when you say she's made it into your heart. :D

Thank you for the complement on description. It's such a subjective thing. Some people think I do all right with it, and other reviewers feel like it's one of my weaknesses. Can be hard to know what balance to strike.

Ah, Bill. This was hard. I wanted him to talk to her - Sadie really shouldn't have been left alone - but I didn't want it to turn weird or something. I'm trying to stick to canon as much as possible for the books, and so I was left with very few characters who were available to slip away like that. Bill was one of them - but I think he ended up working out so good I probably would have picked him even if I could have used anyone. And I did want to give Sadie someone to look to in a brotherly fashion - someone older than the rest who are hopefully going to become her friends.

Hehehe - spelling. I have to confess. I have chosen to use American spellings instead of British. Spelling is my weakness, and spellcheck is my friend. But my spellcheck is set to pick up American English, not British. But, my justification is that the Harry Potter books I read DID use American spelling. So, while I will try to get phrases and words that might be different to the correct British form, I am going to let my American spelling stand. I hope that doesn't bother you too much.

And thanks again for reading! This review was so much fun! I love it when you get feels for my story!
