Great detail - I was colder and colder the more I read! This sounds like a good start to a longer story - you wove a lot of information into it in so few a words. I felt the ending came abit fast based on how long it took to reach it - maybe stretch that part more and drop some toward the top - when you write a longer story it will give you more opportunity to do that.:) Nice writing!

I agree--expand this one!
I love this setting. This was a good read. I agree with the other commenters, this would be wonderful expanded. Maybe even the first chapter of a novel?

A lovely story of faith, hope and love during the early days in America. Nicely done.

You paint amazing pictures with your words - I would also love to see this expanded - more of a great thing is always good!

Fabulous descriptions and detail heavily laced with Americana! I agree about how this could be expanded into a Christian romance novel! (What is a "wicker"?)

This one brought some tears. Very touching - you wrote it well.
How did I miss this? It's wonderful. You are surely keeping up the good work. Send me your title for this week so I don't miss again!
