|Reviews for John & Margaret: Coming Home With Me|
| BethH 5/8/13 . chapter 1
I was a fan of this FF from the time the author started posting a chapter each week and sought other FF online of N&S. There are many who published their continuation on Amazon and they are horrible and could not compare to this story even in its rough draft form. So when I came back after seeing that the author added and found out she published, I immediately went to Smashwords and bought it. OMG! It is amazing and just as she said, she added unexpected twists and upped the romance (and does it so tastefully). I thought her ending was perfect here and could not get any better, I was so wrong. She added another element that just took my breath away. It involves the death of John's father. I won't spoil it but it really raises the storyline big time. What impressed me is the dialogue. You can hear Richard Armitage and Daniella' s continue their lines like the mini series never stopped. Sure, this FF was the best I have read on this site for period dramas, but her taking this and publishing it made it the BEST N&S CONTINUATION YOU WILL EVER READ. And I read them all. If you think that the book is the same, It is not. I cried, chuckled, sighed, went wide-eyed, laughed out loud, got heated and sighed again. I have to go to Amazon and order me a printed copy. That good. PS She had a FF for Lost in Austen but she took it off that was really good. I am hoping she publishes it too.

Wonderful story. Sadly, I've read the book so there are many, many wrongs in it. I do understand that it picked up from the movie, though. I am glad to have a story to think about after they get on that train. I do wish Elisabeth Gaskell had taken it further as well.

Awesome. It would be great if this would be made into a movie. Thanks for writing this. I really enjoyed it.

Sooo I just read all twenty-one chapters over the course of 6 hours. Can I just say, this is an amazing story. Thank you so much for writing and posting it! And the ending was by far the best I've ever read. Simply amazing!

JOHN & MARGARET - COMING HOME WITH ME HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN PUBLISHED!
I have added so much to the storyline and more "raised eyebrows" and "jaw dropping" moments. Yes, more intimacy as well...oh my, did I *blushes*. I went from 55,000 words to 83,000 words.
You can find it on Amazon/com for print and Kindle and at Smashwords/com for other downloads! Author: Mary Jo Schrauben.
If you liked my FanFic-a very rough draft-you are going to LOVE the spit-polished and shined end product. Thank you everyone for encouraging me to take this project on!

I loved this to bits! :D How you captured their characters and their relationship... just perfect! Oh, and his poor old mother... So, all in all, yeah... absolutely perfect! ;]
Thank you very much!

That was the epilogue that I needed. That was perfect. Thank you.
(although I could not help but notice a few absent commas and mistaken verb tenses... it was extraordinarily well written other than that, though)

My goodness- I'm only a third of the way through and this is amazing. I can clearly picture their faces and hear their voices through their lines, especially Margaret and Mrs Thornton.

Oh my gosh. That was the most incredible opening chapter. Holy shiz. I'm hooked.

Hello, I am the author of this Fan Fiction and I thank everyone for their wonderful reviews and suggestions. I am so tickled...no bad reviews out of 104! I just recently lost my job and with all this added time I am editing this story and will shortly be publishing it with createspace / Amazon. I am adding so much to this story with new twists, more detail and refining. I will let you know when it is available. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this continuation of North & South. - FaithfullyMB
