Excellent. I wasn't aware of this moment in history. Wonderful to know that a frivolous society actually had members with backbone and determination to stand for right. Well done.
Wow!Perfection on so many levels.I can see a whole novel growing from this introduction.Excellent writing.
Brawn behind the beauty! Good piece. I loved this phrase "Constance was the sun whilst Lizzy was merely the moon, shining with a borrowed light." A borrowed light! Wonderful wording! Great writing.
Great job of setting the scene and description. Love the ending too.
I've known of William Wilberforce for some time and recently saw the excellent movie "Amazing Grace," about his struggle against the slave trade in England.

I enjoyed reading your story on this subject, but I was slightly confused at one point as to who the MC was--William himself, a friend or supporter of his, or just someone using the tour as a way to win a woman.

My favorite lines were the following: "From her chrysalis of green silk and ribbons there was emerging a quite different woman. The softness of innocence was disappearing. An angel of stone perhaps, Constance took on a determination and purpose that dismissed frivolity."

Fascinating, well-written story! :)
Hooray for Constance. She proved herself strong on so many levels. This was a very interesting read, and kept my attention. Good work.
Excellent writing skills on an important event in history.
Creative and oh, sooo well written!
