Your really tapped into your readers' emotions with this bittersweet story!

The "waiting publisher" bit seems perhaps a bit unlikely. What if she hadn't found the MS for years? And there were a few errors in writing mechanics that could be edited a bit.

I really like the emotional healing at your conclusion.

I bet my goose bumps are bigger than yours! :)....Seriously, this is an absolutely great story. You left me wanting to read that book!
Great story line. Watch out for overused phrases, that have been used so often in writing they have lost a certain fresh appeal. "Chilled to the bone...," etc..
What a beautiful story. Thank God for Kleenex. Funny how we turn into our mothers as we age. You did an outstanding job with this weeks challenge. Keep writing and God bless.
I liked that her mother had left her a legacy. We've been in many attics this week with the challenge and this is the first I've read where the mother told her daughter's story--nicely done.
Your manuscript story sounds so much like my life. I cried all the way through it. It reminded me of my life and how I began to write. Not in all of the same ways but nevertheless that is what Faithwriters is all about! Thanks for sharing. Great job!
