A strong, clear inside look at your MC's mind, which reminds me of when a retired colleague's wife learned they were moving to a new church by reading about it in the national denominational journal. A sad stroy, but well described.

Oh boy! I can relate to this story. I didn't "bloom" until I had been married for awhile...when I had made some lasting friends.
Great dialogue and inner thoughts. Well done!

A masterful piece which I enjoyed tremendously. Looking into the MC's thoughts and seeing the edge through which her pain colored her experience it was easy to relate to my own slightly sarcastic yet humorous way of coping that I think many of us can relate to. Well done and well deserved win.
