Again, a masterfully written chapter as we dive into the last one. I'm kind of sad to see this story end, but now I'll have a chance to read your other book. Nice work here.

    Thanks. This was a fun chapter to write. Watching my mother transform into the strong, kind, compassionate woman I always wanted and needed was a true joy.

    Thank you. It was a fun chapter for me. Remembering the truly fun times and that my mother stepped up and accepted responsibility for her part in my anguish made healing so much easier. I appreciate your kind words.

Another excellent chapter... the only problem I have is that I've totally lost track of time... how old were you at this point? I don't know if you've mentioned it along the way and I've missed it, but if not, then you might like to give readers occasional references? Unless they would pick them up ok if reading the book straight through, of course. Well done - can't wait for last chapter.

    I am posting it as we speak...so to speak. Thank you for your suggestions. I have occasionally made references to date and times but may need to clarify it more. I plan to go back over the book and made various additions and deletions.

Another extremely moving chapter. The fact that you've overcome such hardship with your mother and ended up forgiving her is a true example of spiritual victory. I'm so happy you are there for each other in the end and that you were able once again to open your heart. It's hard to believe your mother is the same person. I was surprised to see you living in Mexico as I thought you were in the U.S. all the time. Very good writing and spag free. Penelope

Hi there
What a great chapter. I love the way your relationship has come to this point with your mother. I have this huge smile on my face, and it is great to know that she has you at her side. And she is finally on your side, each of you loving each other like you now do. I think this is a fantastic story and although she had a seizure, you were there, right there, making sure she got the best medical treatment possible. I look forward to the last post. Marion.

    Thank you for your kind review. This was a wonderful time for both my mother and me. After so many years of anger it was amazing we became so close.

This chapter absolutely deserves 6 stars, if I had them, you'd have them too. I loved this chapter.

That was always the next question whenever I discussed my inability to feel love. (I don't know if this sentence is necessary(?))

The look on Mom's face/went/ from confusion to guilt.

Sounds pretty crazy, doesn't it?/"/

After talking with the doctor who said she should be seen by a specialist/,/ I decided to take Mom home immediately.
(just a suggestion)

Absolutely perfectly written. I am so glad you and your mother managed to get through the pain and learn how to love each other. I felt a distinct lump in my throat when you described Mom having a seizure. Very well written.

If you're posting your last chapter tomorrow, I find myself wondering what on earth shall I read? I shall miss your writing.

Warmest wishes
Kat

I am most moved at the reconciliation between you and your mom - you describe your journey to this place in your life beautifully. I will be sorry to see your book come to an end tomorrow. Brooke

    Thank you so very much. Yes, for me it is much like giving away your daughter in marriage. I will miss this very much.
