This was beautifully written. Hard to read in places
due to the pain both women were feeling. You have done a masterful job of presenting an alternate way for Maura to meet and learn to love her mother.
Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us

My God... This is one of the most sensitive and delicate story I've ever read here. Thank you so much for sharing this piece of work. You made me cry, it broke my heart in a billion of pieces, and it gave me so much to think about. Life is really that fragile, isn't it?
You are very talented. Thanks again for sharing it with us.

Sobbing. Giant, honking, snot-filled sobbing. But in a good way. :). Seriously, this is one of the best, most memorable R&I fics out there. I don't know how many times I've read it but it gets me every time.

Cool. Should have been more emotions from Jane, but I liked it anyway. :-)

Wow, this was amazing. Hope was so wonderfully written, and Maura came across as completely true to her character.
Thank you for posting!

I rarely post reviews but this was incredible. You have a talent I wasn't aware I could find on this website. This was remarkable and, personally, I am blown away by the lack of reviews. This is a unique, creative take on the Maura and Hope relationship that I had never thought of. I am very impressed. I look forward to reading more of your work. In fact, I'm going to do that right now. Bravo.

Wow, how did I miss this gem before? It's beautiful and so so sad.

Sad and beautiful.

How haven't I found this treasure before? One of the best story lines for Maura and Hope, if not the best. I must confess I was a bit curious because of the title, since I don't usually fall for romance fics of any sort. However, you got me hooked with your original idea and flowing writing. I guess I'll reread it a lot more times than you might think. What a gift you've given us, fans.

Wow, this was an amazing story! And although I've read many fics in my life, this is the first one to make cry. Wonderfully written and beautiful idea. CONGRATULATIONS! Thank you so much for sharing this piece of art with all of us.

This story hooked me from the get-go. I was absolutely enthralled, both by the plot and by the way you delivered it. Thank you for writing this.

Damn, you've got me sitting here with tears streaming down my face. That ending, especially the letter, was just too good.

Love this story...it made me cry.

I commented on this on Archive of Our Own (I was Hettiegolightly) but having just re-read this, felt another comment was due here - I really can't understand why more people haven't read this, particularly given the type of illiterate garbage that draws hundreds of OMG! type messages on this site - perhaps because it hasn't been divided into smaller chapters? Anyway, as I said before, this really is exceptional, and yes, I cried on the second read too. Absolutely beautiful. That's a real talent you have there. I particularly like that it isn't sugary - the new step family's reaction is acerbic and real. Poor, poor Maura. If only the show was a fraction as nuanced and brilliantly observed as this.

That was amazing. I loved it
