I truly enjoyed this. I felt that the story described Mary's relationships with Charles, Evelyn and Matthew really well.

I heartily enjoyed this story. From a writing standpoint, I admire your attention to detail in evoking the time period. The characters were fleshed out, and I especially appreciated your treatment of Evelyn and Virginia. You seem to understand Mary so well in all her faults and virtues. If Julian Fellows gives Charles Blake the short end of the stick (*crossing fingers that he won't!*), I will remember this story fondly. Thank you for sharing this-I'm so glad you wrote it instead of an essay!

lovely, really lovely.

Wow! This is written brilliantly- both the dialogue and the narration are very Fellowes-esque. You obviously put a lot of work into this and it's marvelous.

The shooting scene reminds me that there was an exclusive club in northern Wisconsin in the 1920's devoted to members only from the upper echelon of Chicago Society where they could shoot, swim and meet. At one point the members dammed a small stream to create the lake which flooded some local's property and led to some tension. Later, the dam burst and the resulting flood did not endear the members to the locals.

Well written dialog! Not always easy to do.

WHOA, NELLY! This was excellent. I was hooked and am pretty devastated that it ended.
Please write more things that are so carefully thought-out and realized. They are a pleasure.

Wow! Your story is amazing! I cant wait to read more! I really feel like you got Mary's character ;)

I don't know if you intend to continue on with this, but I'm going to need an update. Seriously. This was brilliant.

Loved the story. I liked meeting the people who gathered for the weekend. What a mixed bag. Those house parties were not for the meek. I am already imagining Mary with Charles. Going to meet the relatives in Ireland is a perfect part of a logical plot. Thank you for the notes and poetry at the end. Neatly done. Now I understand that Virginia and Evelyn are the parallel story. All about what brings people together and why Mary and Evelyn were never a possibility. I'm cheering Charles on and I hope that Uncle Julian does not disappoint me. Charles has purpose. He is the opposite of stuffy. Mary respects that. Gillingham has bags of charm but no current purpose other than chasing our Mary.

I was anxious for this chapter, and it did not disappoint! Just wonderful. I would love to read a continuation of it - I really enjoyed Virginia as a character, and would be very interested in how she and Evelyn get on. And Mary and Charles, of course - I think your analysis of the differences in Mary's relationships with each of the three men (well, four, including Matthew) are dead on. And yes...that conversation between Evelyn and Mary would be fascinating, as would the Charles/Evelyn discussion you mention. Anyway, I thought this was great, and I hope there will be more!

Keep writing. I am enjoying this. I am still a Matthew/Mary fan but this is fresh for me. Good job

Well explained reasons for your view greatly interesting and appreciated.

Excellent update. One thing though, you mention that Evelyn transferred to the "Ministry of Finance" - if you would like to be more accurate it should be either the Treasury (if we are talking money) or Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (more suited to farming). There is no such thing as a "Ministry of Finance" in Britain.

I adored the conversation between Mary and Virginia, seeing them finally lay eveyrthing out flat. I honestly felt relief hit me and the proclamation to be allies made me chuckle.
The moment of Virginia helping Evelyn, it warme dmy heart and I am so glad you included it. In the show I hate how we never see the after effects of what the war did to these men. You write it with such heart ache and I can imagine it so clearly.
Thank you again for another amazing chapter. I am off to wave my Mary/Charles flag in your corner.
