Another fine chapter, placing me bak in the time. I like the little personality of Caitlin. It's good to me to see that the hubby has disappeared - hope he stays gone!

This work has reached the exceptional level
This is without a doubt a very exceptional piece of writing.

The style and grammar is very well done and the story is told in a very believable manner.

You definitely manage to achieve the "strong Irish brogue" voice tone.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the chapter and I am looking forward to seeing more of your work on fanstory.

Well done.

Good

lovely opening paragraph that sets the scene, creates interest and provides details to form a picture in the readers mind.


"Yes, Mum." Caitlin's nervous energy was apparent in the way she shifted her feet.

The option is the be more concise with the above sentence, "Yes,Mom." Caitlin shifted her feet.
Let the reader come to the conclusion that the child is nervous. It is show by the shifting of her feet.

Overall the Dialogue goes a long way to develop the characters and drive the chapter beginning to end. Writing any type of slang dialect is a challenge whether it be Irish, Scottish or Welsh. Good work

Looks like Miss Caitlin has a lot of energy. Her mother is teaching her how to do her chores and good manners. Wonder what happened to the father. Good story, Charlie. I enjoyed reading it. I thought the story is well done. Caitlin is growing up fast.

Another nice offering, Charlie. Your writing is well-done as always. :) After so many views, it doesn't surprise me at all that there is nothing for me to find awry, even if there had been to begin with. I look forward to more... :)

Hi Charlie,
you are keeping up with the dialect very well and consistantly and the intimate portrait of mother and child were very well done. I thought was was a very lovely and tranquil scene. Great job--Ted
