Loved it! The Aussie accent was so well written it made me giggle.
Once again I wished it could have been a bit longer. I've enjoyed reading your stories this cold wet afternoon in WA. Thank you for making it free.

This is why I love short stories. It's short, sweet, and a little bit sensual. I kinda wish it were 3k words longer, but it's perfect at it's current length. This is my favorite story! And I am wondering why you removed me from your favorite authors list (I'm just wondering. Feel free to reply in a review).

A good short story with the only disadvantage is that it ends too early - it would've been good to have seen the story, and characters develop more, but, the glimpse given by the author into these is very proficient.

Review by: Wendy Scott on June 12, 2011 :
Charming story -- Macca and Eloise love and concern for their daughter shines through as the story unfolds, each parent in a unique way. Teenager Grace's defiance and angst is universal.
I would love to see a longer version of the story to expand the characters and allow them to settle into their personalities. We only get glimpses in a short piece, but that's the nature of shorts, isn't it?
Nice conflict in the setting (depression era against the wealth of Grace's family).

Great story. I am having a baby daughter at the end of the year. It brought up more details than I cared to think about as of yet :)
