Chapter 21 of the book The Maid of the Mill
-I appreciate your notes about what is to come next.
-You did a good job with the ending of this section.
-I got a feeling of melancholy from "The hollow sound

"with a heavy heart, she also recognised..."
-There is also a sense of resignation that

-You mention Bridie and her role being
like what Hettie's new role will be.
-Sean has his eye on the next prize or
-I also like how you bring in
Jonet's philosophy as a reminder.
-The conclusion is excellent and makes
a very good point about how Hettie sees herself,
a miller with no reference to gender, and it makes
sense because that is the life she knows.
-She didn't have her mother for the

-You really did a great job with this.
