Your descriptions of Sarah and what she was going through are very good. (My heart really went out to her.) You've masterfully crafted this story. I love the redemption aspect.

Three cheers for Sarah's cousin! This was well written and gave insight into living under the rule of an indenture situation. Well done, you had me feeling deeply for Sarah and wanting to dump Mistress Tomkins in the washtub. Well done.

I think you blew us all out of the water with this one. The voice was perfect and the detailed descriptions and setting are impeccable.
This was a joy to read and your Biblical tie-in was masterfully done.
Kudos!
Congratulations on placing with this really excellent entry.
Congratulations on your EC! This is a wonderful, picture of our uncommon redemption through Jesus Christ.

You did a great job of SHOWING the horrors of being an indentured servant. It was well-written and entertaining. Congratulations on a well-deserved win.

Whew! I got tired just reading about this poor hard-working girl, and I could feel her relief at the thought of being redeemed. Well done.

Wonderful parallels here between the MC and her redeeming cousin, and Jesus redeeming, which of course is why God put that clause in the Bible, to pre-figure the redemptive work of Christ. I especially loved the first half. Also reminded me somewhat of 'A Little Princess,' who was 'redeemed' by her father's busines partner.
