I did read your Author's Note and two stories so far - and I have every intention of reading every one that you have written. I rather respect your use of limited dialogue in this story and judging by your other story, I would say you don't have a problem with balance. What needed to be said that wasn't? Possibly the critics didn't count the inner dialogues as dialogues. I hope you keep writing!

Lovely. I think in older times that the inability of people to correspond easily and the mores/values held people back from pursuing insincere relationships. Edwards fantasy recollections of a lovely if unattainable muse is not unreasonable. Bella's situation as a widow allows her the ability to find and seek a physical relationship and to be wooed quickly by Edward. The expectation that they are simple creatures enamored of each other at this point in life is a lovely romantic fantasy. I do believe that realtionships were forged in steel just like this in my grandparents times. Letters, intentions, ethics and stereotypical roles were the fabric of lives. Some of these things are lost in today's society. Very well written.

What a beautiful story. Unrequited, decade long love finally resolved.
Their joining together in quiet passion was more moving and intense than any graphic love scene I have read. It spoke of emotion and longing with strong passionate undertones.
The emotion evoked through the writing style spoke of that era in time very effectvely. I could feel the restrained gentlemanly nature of men of that time along with the timidity of a woman and a widow to do anything innapropriate, while also feeling the yearning from both of them for love and acceptance.
I believe they came together at the right time for both of them, social constraints earlier in their lives may not have allowed them to love one another, shown effectively when she saw him while shopping, she thought him handsome and admired him, but quickly dismissed any thoughts of him as they moved in different circles and also shown through his inability to be able to approach her when they were younger.
He has loved her for a long time and I feel sure that her feelings although not there yet, will follow quietly, but quickly.
Extremely enjoyable story. I would love to read a longer fic in this style if you ever wrote again in a similar era.
