I just recently read Loner - which I absolutely loved! Lost more than a little sleep as it was so hard to put it down. Thank you so much allowing us to see Edward's earlier days. As painful as the story is, I look forward to seeing how Carlisle and family dealt with this heartbreaking situation.
Keep going - the first chapter is wonderful!

Great start! I can't wait to read more. Though it was heartbreaking to read of Edward's injuries and reactions to people through Carlisle's eyes.

*sob* I love Carlisle. There is no doubt in my mind that Edward would have been institutionalized if Carlisle and Esme had not taken him in. *sob* So sad. The only reason I am going to be able to read this is because I know the ending. *sniff* Great job with this, Nilla.

Welcome back! Even though we knew the story, reading it from Carlisle's POV was heart breaking. Can't wait to see what Esme has to say.
Will we get Elizabeth's POV?

I had read a long tome ago some articles that were with regards to abused children and their recovery. I don't remember all the details but I remember how in extreme cases, children who were abused from such a young age never really develop the skills necessary to fully join society. I read about one girl who was just the most extreme abuse imaginable, and she never was able to connect with anyone even on a basic level. Obviously Edward isn't so horrifyingly extreme, but there are some things that remind me of those articles. I really look forward to Esme's pov. It must have been a profound moment for her, one where you realize immediately that your life has changed. The part with Emmett in the end was a sad bit of foreshadowing of what happens with those two, their relationship I mean. I'm dreading Emmett's pov.

I was almost in tears before I even started reading this. A beautiful insight into what Carlisle went through. I look forward to all the rest of them.

Wow! Glad to see that after all his pain Carlisle really helped Edward!
| TwilightFan2694 chapter 1 . 7/28/2011
Wow. This is amazing! Poor Edward. I just can't picture such a young kid in a situation like that. I can't wait to see where you take this story from here. It is very interesting to see what Carlisle thought when he first met Edward. Are you planning to do POVs from the other members of the Cullen family? Keep up the great work! :)

That is heartbreaking from Carlisle's point of view. But I can feel Carlisle's compassion and turmoil, his deep desire to reach out to this broken little boy. And he is so hopeful, and it will take so very long for Edward to be able to reach back and truly embrace his new family...
