JenGreen rec'd this story today. I am so glad she did. The funny thing is that I'm always afraid to read her updates because her story is so sad and she hasn't even gotten to the why or how Bella and Edward's futures diverted. This story is equally as angsty and still many questions are unanswered, but I read all ten chapter in a matter of a couple of hours.
I really feel teary right now. It seems that Bella is the one that really needs to do something different and learn to live and love. She's spent so much time deflecting love and life. I seriously doubt that if she said yes to Edward's proposal way back then that they would still be together. As Edward has discovered, it's not enough when only one person is willing to love the other. Sometimes it just isn't enough.
Bella didn't tell the three people who meant the most to her that she loved them. Maybe this journey she is taking, that she'll find her way and break down the walls that she's kept herself a prisoner within. I look forward to the next update.

Ohhh my. You can feel both of their pains. Bella leaving is good for her to heal herself. she can't be what she wantss to be for Edward until she knows who she is. I hope it all ends well.

So beautiful! So hard! So deep!
You have all this depth and warmth and mystery, telling little bits of time with an underlying of 'love you forever'.
Bella has Renee's 'someday'-it should have been beautiful but is lacking, empty.
A treasured tradition jarred here by an unexpected presence, still not made right.
What can make them right if they don't really grasp what made them wrong? Will you somehow fix it with your beautiful writing?

Man, I really want Bella to feel better. I wonder if her volunteer work will having anything to do with pediatric trauma in LA?

"I shouldn't have proposed."
From last chapter's BPOV, I thought it was a mean, spiteful thing to say; I was heartbroken for Bella. But now, I'm heartbroken for Edward!
And now I'm reminded of Charlie's line from before, about loving Renee too much.
And I love this line:
I can feel her all around me even though she isn't touching me.

Whoa! All the air just left me at Edward's last line.
JenGreen03 recommended this story in "Under the Same Moon." I'm glad she did and I'm happy I listened.

Oh, this chapter was awesome! The only issue I have with it is that I'm finished reading it! Wish I could read for it for days so that I know what happens! I love your way with words.
Bella talking to her parents at the cemetery broke my heart. remembering the crash, charlie's death, dinner with Edward - both times, simply awesome!
I see your reviews have tripled since I started this last week - I LOVE IT! Congrats! I tweeted this one for you too! It is on FB as well.

You more than lived up to expectations with this chapter. The story of Charlie's death and Bella's pilgrimmage to Forks Cemetery - so powerful. Two life-changing days for Bella so beautifully expressed around something as ordinary as beef stew. I love the way Carlisle seems to be a constant supporter of Bella's, despite whatever has happened between her and his son. I think we're getting some insight into why Bella has had to construct such a thick armour around herself as protection against all the love that keeps on betraying her. Her somedays disappear before she can reach them. Really curious about Bella's plans for volunteering. Thanks for sharing your wonderful story.

Yeah - that was a big one! I was initially confused with the time shift, but quickly got a handle on it and then it was all good. I'm glad she has promised to talk to him, because you are breaking my heart here. So next will be after she's been away? Can't wait for Wednesday.
