Wow. What an incredible tale you've written! I don't really know what to say - I love your perfectly well-rounded characters and the world you put them, and I love the situations the brother's found themselves in. Beyond all that I loved seeing the world through your main character's eyes and hearing her internal dialogue. It really brought me into the story and kept me there. (I also love the phrase "more nervous than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs." I haven't heard that in ages!)

I'm so glad I found your fic - excellent work!

I'm so pleased you saw into the original conceit: the viewpoint of those people the brothers encounter. Never quite hearing the full story, their lives are touched then the boys move on.

Glad you liked it!

There were definite times when I was hoping you'd break the structure just so we could see what happened at the church or the jail, but I know why you did the things you did. It's bittersweet and lovely!
