Great story. One of those that you kind of have an idea how it will turn out, but you have to keep reading to find out how it happens!
Very well composed, a delightful story. Definately gets one of my votes (as if that meant anything).
And Lynda makes three who think this is great. Congratulations on a job well done.
This was great! Very uplifting!
what a delightful story. You have great storytelling ability. Be proud of this entry, you did a fabulous job!
I really like this, too! Reminds me of one of my favorite old book/movies, "Pollyanna." It's a real gift to write sunshine (Sonshine)into the world, and you've got it.
One suggestion: Your opening will be much stronger if you wait to reveal Hope Amherst's name until she introduces herself. Great piece!
Congratulations! You're a great storyteller and I'm thrilled you won this recognition. God bless you!
Beautiful story, but like other have already stated, you already knew where it was going. Still, it was a wonderful story.

I did think the story wound up too quickly at the end. The reader doesn't seem to have a chance to get a sense that she is truly coming out of her depression before the story is over. But it's probably more of my personal preference. Others didn't seem to have a problem with the ending.

Nice job and congratulations
