Wonderful story, Charlie!
the strong bond always helps.
The story has been advanced with very interesting and realistic dialogues,
the women characters have actually excelled here,
very interesting! I loved the part where Kathleen offered her hand to Caitlin- lets be goin downstairs! Sweet!

This is a good chapter, and well describes the life of a child in those days when they were expected to behave. Again, dialects are not easy for me. From what I have read, I think you are doing a fine job!!! Debbie

Charlie:

Hyperactivity didn't just start in the 2000s, that's
for sure! Caitlin sounds a bit like my granddaughter,
or maybe I should say my granddaughter sounds a bit
like Caitlin. She has real problems with impulse
control, too -- LOL!

thanks for sharing
love,
jan

Charlie,

This is an excellent chapter about Jo's happy childhood. I would suppose that she survived the orphanage and her uncles because she remembered that she had been loved and respected.

I enjoyed this read and have a couple of suggestions:

"Brianna's children will be making better role models [examples] for her." The phrase "role models" is pretty recent. I don't think a nineteenth-century woman would use it.

""My, you'll [you're] getting to be a big girl."

Dave

Hi Charlie - a six for you, because for me you've stretched a wee bit laddie and pulled it off remarkably well. I enjoy your story. Bill

I was away for two weeks and missed some parts. However, I get the drift of what's happening.
It's excellent as usual.
A few points merit your attention.
1.Once gathered, she swept it onto a metal dust pan and emptied it into the trash barrel.- once they were gathered,
2.Mrs. Kennedy sat in her wheelchair at the table, drinking her special tea, returned her greeting. Mrs. Kennedy sitting in the wheel chair and drinking her tea, returned her greeting- for parallelism.

Caitlin is so sweet and such a live-wire. I love the energy that you've shown between her and her mother. They have a strong bonded, and Kathleen is teaching Caitlin some serious lessons in safety and manners.
Your dialogue is charming and the plot is developing nicely.
Under lying philosophy like: This is America. Yeh can be whatever you want to be.
and
the friendship of all these women
are what will shape this little cracker-jack into a dynamic woman.
Great human interaction. Honest and warm.

Well I am still getting all the enjoyment from reading your story, but I would say, look out for a reviewer named Janice66 or something along those lines, as she does not understand the use of "dialect"....lol!!

Another ringer c_L. I must have missed a chapter or two as Catlin has grown considerably. I went through this part line by line and didn't find any errors.
