Primarycolors recommended this on Twitter. I came to read because I usually do what she says because she is the boss of me :)
This prologue made me want to cry! Which, I think was the point, sooo...job well done! Looking forward to more.

Just spent my morning reading all nine chapters... So lovely. I love the way you write- complex enough to put the pictures in our head, simple enough to allow us to fill in the blanks.
The back and forth in time is killing me- in a good way- for what could have been and the hope that they might still figure it out.
I love that you have everyone there, but that the whole cast isn't sitting there in our faces demanding attention- it's Bella and Edward, and the beauty of change, painful, liberating, revealing.
Ok! I'm off to FB and tweet the hell out of your story because you need more reviewers in your life.

"Maybe one day I will become so good at pretending that even I will believe the lie." - I can relate completely. In awe.

For your first fic, you are doing an absolutely fantastic job! I felt like I got punched in the stomach when that arm wrapped around him. Then the comment about him being a hypocrite made perfect sense. I am all in wherever this ride takes me.

Damn-too early in the morning to cry, but, yeah, you made me. Beautiful Esme story, and that's not when I cried, not til Edward at the end, Esme's sunset. The phone call to the hospital? Bella doesn't know he's coming. I need the next.

Something about orphans-that is where the Charlie/Renee money will go. But why call Edward, then Alice when he didn't answer? More, please!

So sad. I feel so bad for him, and even for Tanya. It wasn't her fault, but it wasn't anybody's fault. Where will this go now? I still have more catching up...

Wonderful piece of all the backstory here, both Edward and the car crash with her mom. Why didn't someone see that she got counseling for post tramatic stress problems? I understand the money. Who took her in when Charlie was gone, Dr Cullen?-another absentee father! tHE OWL! mADE TIME STAND STILL. gREAT STORYTELLING.

I was sent here by Kennedy Nicole Cullen from the lemonade stand on facebook.
Jeez. What can I say. Such a beautiful, broken, hurting story. I die when I read it but I love it too. Their pain is just gutwrenching. I can see there is hope there though and I'm gonna keep reading. You have really sucked me in!

I imagined how they would see each other for the first time. But what you gave us, him in "his pajamas, disheveled and full of sleep. and brushing past her "without a word or even a glance. Nothing." That was unthinkably beautiful.
Strangers cheer for the bride and groom.
-Loved. loved. loved this. Almost as much as I loved strangers carrying tables and chairs.
After the jar went completely black, he jumped from his bed, ran to the window, and opened it up. The little bugs lit up again and flew into the night sky. He was smiling so wide.
-I love you use their past to tell us who they are today.
I wonder how I've survived so many years without him.
-Losing something like that...

A plan is all I have.
-These words hurt me.
... Imagining how different it would be if mom were here too.
-These hurt harder.
My mom would be so proud of her. I'm proud of her.
For living her life.
For picking herself up.
For letting Jasper love her.
For loving him back.
-And I'm thankful for these...

I read on your profile you say you are not a writer, well I beg to differ. Your words are full of such aching beauty - the poignant, wistful scenes of the past and the jagged-edged scenes of the present. The story thus far is desperately sad but I am enjoying reading it so much. I saw your story rec'd on facebook today by KennedyNicoleCullen and I'm really looking forward to the next update - is that plane going to New York? Thanks so much for sharing.

He leaves the room carrying something invisible.
Love your words.
Loved Edward-Bella bits.
Very curious where it's going.

WOW! Amazing prologue :)
Love your writing style, fantastic. This poor Bella makes me very sad. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Nic from TLS rec'd your story. I trust her and I'm happy because I trust her. Your words are pretty.
