Very touching, hopeful story. The transition from destitute to dancing seemed a bit quick, but otherwise a great article. God bless!

A lovely mythic tale of comfort.

Those mysterious Scottish lochs, eh? Not that I've stood by one but I feel like I have now. You set the scene beautifully.

Ditto to all above. You paint an eerie and misty canvas. Good job.
A good reminder of to be careful what words we say for they may be our last. Good writing!

I hope this is an outline for a novel. I'd read it!
Ditto to Jan! Very well written!

You did indeed portray the scene so realistically. And I love how the character chided herself for pondering the "unchristian" story, and yet it stuck in her head. Isn't that the way it is, sometimes!
Great job. This would make a great longer story or book.

You really captured a sense of place, endowing it with a mystical atmosphere. Well drawn character with whom I could empathise. Also like the ‘chiding’. (So easy to put God in a box.) Good work. Yeggy
I liked this very much - and I agree that it could be the basis of a much longer story or novel. It flowed well and the characters were warm and real. God bless.
