I think that out of all the entries I've read, yours is the one that captured the period in which it was set the best...
I truly enjoyed this story, and parts of it made me reminisce a little on Pride and Prejudice, and Persuasion... specially the points about Bella preferring to remain a spinster than betray her heart, and the concerns Edward had with the gap between Bella and himself in regards of stature...
Very well written piece,

What a beautiful story over love overcoming all odds. I thought it was wonderful how Esme was able to help convince Carlisle that Bella was the right one for Edward.

The period was wonderfully captured. I've always been a sucker for Regency romances and I'm thrilled that you added this to the competition, especially given how sweet it is.
Best of luck to you.

That was a really great story! I loved that there wasn't a lot of angst between Edward and Bella. It's nice to see a story where they love each other and can be together. Good luck in the contest :)

this was beyond amazing!
i hope you consider expanding this into a full story? or at least continuing with life after their marriage? :)
it's so good!

First of all, I think you deserve a thank you for not continually throwing stones in their pathway. I think it unnatural to have hindrance after hinderance thrown in their path to a happy ending.
Wouldn't it have been nice, though, to spend more time between the engagement & the happy ending, maybe describing the things the family did together, her clothes, the description of the wedding, etc? I believe that there are several possible descriptive opportunities that were missed. If you decide to embellish those, I would be very pleased to read them.
