I think this was one of her best stories. One can't help but to think though that there had to have been more than what's said here. Chronology works against it. One of the few things I will credit JKR is that she did not have them marry quickly, or that is the implication.
James is born in 2005, Albus and Rose in 2006, Hugo and Lilly in 2008. I find the idea that they all got married in 1999 or 2000 (allowing Hermione to finish at Hogwarts) and kids only coming five-six years later as implausible. The idea that they married 2003-4 makes much more sense; JKR's implication being that H/R and H/G have had enough time to truly know they are in love.
Of course, BF's thinking here is that there was very little sex happening. But if that is the case, why wouldn't have Harry and Hermione concluded the marriages were mistakes earlier, before there were children to complicate things? For that matter, If Ginny is only interested in the status marriage with Harry brought, why wait so long to have a child? And, for that matter, why have three?
All this to the side, this story makes harmonious sense in explaining why they wouldn't spoken in so long, though I agree with the review who said that Hermione seems too rational-minded to have let this go on for so long, though she could have done so out of misguided pride.
The rest, the withdrawal from the BWW, living as non-magicals, home schooling their children is Pure BF and a story I'll always reread.

I think I'll rip out JKR's epi and replace it with yours, so much better.

Thank you so very much. I couldn't stand that epilogue. I believe you are right about JKR not writing it. I think whoever wrote it just went by her original rough outline. I wonder if in her rush to publish it if she took any thoughtful time before approving it? I was so disgusted with it that I still haven't seen the movie version of DH 1or 2.
Now this makes sense. After all H/HR had to go through growing up, they finally get a happy ending that doesn't disagree with canon.

Much better though so very sad because they were tortured for those 19 years

While i understand Harry not being the biological father and not seeing the kids. Hermione is another story.. she hates her kids, so washes her hands of them and starts with a clean slate..
I find that rather disturbing. I know they were legally barred from having contact, but what about when they came of age?..

so nothing has changed, and it will start all over again!

Again another story I'll read and reread. For some reason, I find all your stories are winners!

If they aren't the 'ONE,' I think every woman has a friend that lived Hermione's experience with Ron. Very well written. Question: Were HHr's children all magical? I assume they were, I mean how could HHr not have amazing magical children. And if they weren't, why would they home school them, why not then send them to public school. Still, you never said, so ... Also, what happened at the end of nineteen years to end their "happiest years either of them ever had?" You are amazing, thank you!

Thanks for the story. :)
Me personally prefer to completely disregard those "nineteen years", as I always had a hard time accepting Hermione would even consider a relationship with Weasley the slob... In both books and movies she is a rather strong, independant woman, that fights for others rights. No way in hell would she be satisfied with being a Weasley breeding cow, taking care of the home.
Ron is actually my most loathed character, I have always hated fairweather friends, and he has far too many less redeeming traits...

This is a great ending to the "19" years later thing. I'm glad that Harry and Hermione finally got together and had the children they should have had. Thanks for writing a better ending to the story. pms

I think this was great but could have been a bit longer and have just a bit more plot behind it
