This is an amazing story. It really drew me in and I found I was almost holding my breath as your MC held that letter - I was so glad when she made the right decision. Your descriptions are so vivid - eg'peering through my own predisposed emotional lens thick with relational pain.' I could really feel for your MC. Excellent.
Poetry in prose. Absolutely masterful. I was absolutely engaged in this story from beginning to end.
This story contained excellent descriptions that heightened my senses, and presented an interesting dilemma that would make for a great discussion in a group setting.
Congratulations Beth. SO well deserved - a fantastic story.
wow! lovely descriptions and well chosen to site it in the present tense the immediacy contrasts with the old and antique discovery :-)
congrats on the EC
I was mesmerized from the description of the the dropping jaw of the old dresser to the the match she lit. Can't say I would have made the same decision but this very emotional piece raises many issues that are well worth pondering.
Congratulations on making the top ten Editors choices. Your story touched my heart. Very good writing, don't stop.
