I am sure you know where you're going w/ this. But I could see this as an opportunity to bring back the lighter mood from the shared dinner at Higgins' home. W/ John's memory gone. Maybe his fear is, too. Then, as things become easier between them, Nicholas comes into his room to discuss a matter w/ Margaret. John has a memory of Margaret smiling Nicholas at the Higgins home. But misinterprets it to mean she is married to Nicholas & b/c more distant. Only to become more confused when his next memory is of her smiling HIM! He tries to insert the carefree repertoire to solve the mystery... Then as his eyes get better, he notices the wedding dress on the chair. I cant remember, is it still in the corner? Maybe she places it there as a reminder to herself... But the dress triggers a memory of him kissing her in that dress & how happy he was at that moment..."We are married? " he asks her. "You're my wife?" Elation floods over him & he knows he loves this woman. He can see the love in her eyes. Things continue to improve b/w them. Until another memory threatens their growing happiness... the one where he is removing her wedding dress & her near death illness. W/ that he has a flooding return of all his memories & his crippling fear of losing her. Yet, he dwells on her last words and actions at the time of the fire, especially that kiss. And they have made new memories of late that prove to him that she isn't going anywhere... could there be a happy endind to write after all? ... These are just my imaginings for the story. I'm sure you have much better & can express them in your beautiful style of writing. Please don't leave us in the air too long. I am desperate to see their happy ending...

Really wonderful! I think that maybe he could rememver her with something related to the wedding dress, or maybe a kiss, or a dream... i don't know... but please, keep writing! Don't leave us this way! It is the best fanfiction of North and South that I have ever read!

Thank you for 2 more wonderful chapters and for continuing with the story. It is such a good story that I am sure you could sell this book in kindle on Amazon once it is finished. I have bought 3 kindle books over the past week that also started on this site and yours is so much better and I would love to buy it if it became available. Thanks again, Sue

I love it! There were a few typos, but overall it's an amazing chapter. Personally I love fanfiction stories that are long. I read them to get enjoyment and short stories just don't do it for me. I'm so invested in your characters! When I checked my in box and your update was there I practically jumped for joy! I can't wait for the next chapter! Oh my gosh! I LOVE IT!

Thanks for the update. I hope you will give us warm fuzzy feels in the next chapters to come. The angst is killing me!
Maybe you could have Margaret wear the blue dress to church - and when she comes to see him - the dress triggers memories. Or a smell of her perfume could trigger memories.

I'm really enjoying your story & don't mind the length of the story, in fact I love that it keeps evolving. Looking forward to the next chapter

It's fantastic to see this updated! I, too, was wondering if it had been abandoned and hoping it had not. Don't worry about the length of the story because that's what so many folks crave is a good long bout of escapism! Keep up the great work!

Okay, I tried posting this, but it said I already reviewed this chapter. So I signed out so I could post what I already wrote. It's me, ImprovementByExtensiveReading
Hmm, for some reason this veered in a different direction than I thought it would. I thought John would wake up w/ obvious health problems, but not to this extent. For him to not remember his own mother. What a blow to her w/ how close they were. I feel fully confident that he'll recover his memory, hopefully sooner than later.
Interesting that he was able to see somewhat shortly after waking up but didn't tell Margaret (or anyone?) about it.
I like the struggle he's having here. Wanting Margaret to come but leave at the same time. Not wanting her to touch him but also wanting it. The duality of it makes for an interesting chapter.
Poor Margaret for John to ask if she's mourning her husband. In a way, she kind of is. Humorous that he's jealous of her husband. Oh, John. Funny how he thinks maybe they were in love once, or she was in love w/ him, and never considers that he is the husband.
He's capable of talking to her by the end of the chapter, I consider that great progress. So he's getting over that mental hump and working through his mental healing concerning Margaret then.
Another chapter that makes me think. I always want to say a great chapter, but your chapters always gets me thinking. Which I find very enjoyable. I might not like that John lost his memory (and I don't, that sucks after everything everyone has been through) but I see how it serves the story. How this will impact healing w/i their relationship. I do hope he gets it back fairly soon though. I wouldn't like for it to be dragged out. They've all suffered bunches, time for some bits of happiness soon?

Dear lord, I hope these two start to come together and have some joy in their lives pretty soon. This is excruciating!
