This is a good feel-good story. Mommy is struggling with depression after her husband was killed by a drunk driver. She's moving to live near her parents. Is this supposed to be a story in itself or part of a novel?

    Please forgive me for this cut and paste response. I've been having a bit of a thriller myself - been clearing trees, shrubs and weeds and a ringer called poison ivy jumped into the match. I lost and my eyes now resemble a prize fighter--swollen to the max. I can squint today so I wanted to let you know I appreciate your reading Thank you for your continued support and understanding...Smiles, Carol

A well written first chapter. The title suits not only moving back home but also the road taken by one's life. The mother and daughter scene goes on naturally and it is vividly described.

Sounds like you have the beginning of a great emotional adventure here, Carol. You sure have all the ingredients for almost anything to occur. You will do well to persue it further, I think. Good luck in the contest, too...Bob

As always, you have written a marvelous beginning for a novel.The first two lines were absolute grabbers.

This brought a lot of sad emotions, but your ending gave hope to the reader that life would again be good.

Excellent!

Sunny

What a melancholy, yet delightful
story, Carol - you are such a natural
with your story-telling - you pull the
reader in right away and keep hold of
their interest throughout.

I stretched lazily, and then like so many mornings,
I stretched lazily and then, like so many mornings, anniversaries, and, oh yeah
anniversaries and, oh yeah
(")Please, Katie
I pushed my body up(.)

Just lovely.
Margaret.

This work has reached the exceptional level
A very well written story of hope, survival, strength and courage. I couldn't imagine having to deal with three children all alone so-to-speak. Grandparents can be a big help but they can only do so much.
Well done, Buck

This is a marvelous beginning to what could be a terrific book. I enjoyed your delightful descriptions of the joy of being pregnant. You conveyed the sadness of her tragic loss very well. This is a great entry for the contest and I sincerely wish you all the best.

This is simple marvelous. I felt like I was walking in her shoes, even having them on the wrong feet. Out of bad times can comes good ones, but how do we find those good ones. I think her children, and father, with help her. Great job.

Oh, this one tugged at the heartstrings, Carol. As always, beautifully portrayed throughout. "anniversaries, and, oh yeah, the night I told you I didn't really have the flu. We celebrated with grape juice and crackers. We hoped I was carrying a son" I don't think the "oh yeah" as if an afterthought for her telling her beloved James she was pregnant, was believable. I think I might consider dropping the "yeah". just a thought excellent
