Oh my lord this was amazing. I cried so hard when you depicted Alice's death. I loved Alice's character. Ireland suits her. :)

Thank you for this one shot. I remember the story of The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire very well. The building has been part of the NYU campus for many years now. The school is my alma mater and I remember attending an Italian class there in the early 90's.

This was amazing and for reasons that you would not ever conceive. I worked for a Jewish doctor back in the 70's whose mother and aunt were in this fire. I remember him describing the conditions his mother had described to him and when I realized this is what you were writing about, I got goose bumps. Very interesting concept and great execution and great pick of beta, js. LOL.

Very poignant and your attention to detail is, as always, breathtaking. It's obvious you research all of your stories thoroughly before writing them and it makes them feel like an immersion into another time.
I loved it and thank you so much for writing.

What a coincidence. I saw document on History Channel about this fire few weeks ago. You did good job with description and climate.
Pity voting is closed by now :(

I loved it! It was really sweet and romantic. Mary Alice's death was very sad but it gave a realistic factor to the story.
