Oh, I love this! I'd give anything to hear it read out loud--you did such a wonderful job with the dialect! And the message is super; you feel it coming, but just as your protagonist does, and you experience the moment with her. Two memorable characters here.

Excellent job on the dialect! This felt so very authentic. I just LOVED that woman - you gave her such a fun, alive, sassy personality.
This was a delight to read. You made the characters so real, and then you had a wonderful lesson for an ending.

This was so much fun! I just loved the dialect. I wanted to read it out loud too! Hettie's personality was perfect. Great title. Just a superb job from start to finish. Great work! Blessings, Cheri

Well, I didn't need no second invite to read this. I took off in the second I seen 'oo wrote it, I did. And that's 'ow I ended up 'ere. Glad I came too. I couldn'tve done a better job with one 'and be'ind 'me back. And I wouldn't even 'ave tried. Masterful it was. ;)
Great job. Congrats on the win!
Well I just got around to reading this, and I am blown away. You did such a great job! I'm working on a dialect piece right now, so I have an even greater appreciation of the effort involved, and yet you made it seem effortless.

I was looking through some challenges I hadn't been able to get to and found this. Helen this is so delightful and fun and yet so very deep. Your talent is exceptional. This is beautifully done. Blimey! Shades of Eliza Doolittle!
