I loved this story! The characters all came alive with their contrasting colorful dialects--I especially enjoyed "hearing" the Scottish girls talk. Beaufiful descriptions also--I could see the roses and taste those scones!

The unusual title also sparked my curiosity. Great job!
Thank you. Of Scottish descent, I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful - and perhaps typical? - article and its associated web page. Love the depiction of the elegant conduct of the times!
Love the ending when Mairi is walking, reminded me of the old Beatles song "'til There Was You." Marvelous writing!
This felt so authentic to place - you did a wonderful job of setting here. This one fascinated me.
Wonderful title, totally charming story, true to the times and with delightful characters. I loved it.
Wonderful story, so sweet and charming. Great job.
Since I know nothing about foreign customs, I was a little overwhelmed here. I also felt that since church on Friday was mentioned that I would have liked to hear the answer somewhere in the writing. (unles I missed something). But you did a good job in creating a romantic relationship beginning. The writing was very good too.
A charming story and a bit of history new to most of us. I commend you for writing so well and establishing the mood that was so perfect for this story. Delightful!
