I liked the death of the main character being held back til the end. It was so poignant. Great ending.
I liked the repetition of the hat as well.
Bravo! What a wonderful depiction of an amazing life and legacy. My mother always told me to dare to be different. This character certainly different was and I love her. The image of the hat and the scent of vanilla were powerful points of interest that drove your message home. The last lines, the buying of a dress...and a hat, were great. This might be my pick for favorite. Wonderfully done.
Oops! I was a little dyslexic there. I meant "was different" not "different was".

Hi Christe. Just a quick note to encourage you and let you know that although your entry didn't actually receive an award this week, it did make it into the semi-finals. That is quite an achievement on such a high competition week. Well done! With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
