Dear Horton,

I'm not a writer. I've spent too many yrs doing cold, clinical charting to be able to tell stories with feeling. But, I DO know an enjoyable read when I see it.

I've longed for the story of young Helen. And here we have it beginning. Thank u so very much.

Ur writing is wonderful. So full of the sights, smells, and colors of the times. It gives my imagination such a grand time.

Ur Helen characterization is,to this point, spot on IMHO. Love the start of this stubborn, brilliant, curious, free thinking young woman.

Please continue. I'm soaking up every bit of this!

Ummm... WHY did we not get to see Helen showing Elsie! :O

Love seeing you deal with Helen's dissapointment/rage at the injustice of the schools back then. I can just imagine how frustrated she would be... holy crap. And what a wonderful conduit Elsie is for distracting/expressing/healing that hurt ;)

Really loving this story. It's hard to imagine Helen so young and inexperienced still, but I love seeing the evolution of her.

I LOVE it! The concept of a little reckless Helen, giving poor hapless nanny's a run for their money, is just WAY too adorable! My gosh! I always imagined her mother dying when she was just a baby, but hey! I love the idea she spent all that time in a cottage. I've never really thought about any other "family" of the Magnus'! Jeepers! Did her cousins and stuff have kids! Are there other Magnus descendants running around anywhere! That thought is SO odd... teeheehee!

Can't wait to see more. *cough Elsie cough*
