Brilliant and engrossing story telling. I had no idea where you were heading until the last paragraph. This is a winner in my books.

Totally credible. Having sat on planes with total strangers who have poured out all kinds of personal details, I know that you have nailed the scenario so clearly. Well done.

So poignant and very much spot on. This 'issue' is generally spoken of as "right or wrong" and the personal aspect with regards to the parents don't rate a mention. This certainly conveys the pain and grieving process that many parents would go through. Truly well done. Blessings, Helen.
The title says it all. Very touching piece. I love the rapport that develops between the MC and the other parent.

This is written with great compassion, sensitivity and realism. It's also very engaging. You've done a great job.
This is beautifully written. As always, the details help define the story. I liked the foreshadowing, and I loved the empathy revealed without explanations needed.

Wow. Great writing. I loved the way you bought a contentious issue back to reality. These are real people with struggling parents. I relate. Thanks.
Beautiful writing. Gut-wrenching emotions. Well done. I'll be thinking about this one for a while.

Masterful! This is Exhibit A for developing writers who want to know the difference between "show" or "tell." it was also a "lesson" for me on how to stretch the rules of grammar. :-) Truly, storytelling at its best and rightfully #1.

Oh my, Anne. I didn't see this first time around. You have a way of saying it simply, but profoundly. There are so many things the reader can pick up on without having them blatantly stated. A very well deserved win.Congratulations!
