this peice is lovely! Such a mix of emotions as is often the case for a new mum. How clever to mix the tragedy of a day of destruction and death with that of the date of a new birth AND to get T.S Eliot The Wasteland in as well. Amazing and all within the word count! Thanks I enjoyed it.
Your 'Title' speaks of Spring, but your story is more about the horror of what happened in that month, and the effect it had on Sarah...than the Season itelf. At first I thought perhaps her daughter's name was "April"- but it was Cassie. Your entry brought mixed emotions to mind - but it is definitely a tender and touching story nonetheless, and nicely done.
I just Knew you were gonna name the baby Cassie:) Good story, sad, poetic, emotionally good.....
well done on the highly commended placement!
