So very well done, not overdone...just right. Shows passion, hurt, struggles of real folks. Also, the love of God wins every time.

I felt as though I were a fly in the wall, listening in. I literally could hear the couple talking. That's good writing!

OUT-STANDing! I clearly heard the brogue in my head as I read Joseph's dialog - even before we found out they were Irish. Superb job writing the dialect. And the story was amazing. I was SO rooting for Joseph, and feeling sorry for his wife. Well Done!
