I should be more articulate in a review, I know, I think the pacing is excellent and the progression of the story unique, (I kept thinking oh she'll go this way or that way) and the love scenes erotic not pornographic, so erm, yes, happy reader here.

No obligations at all: I just hope people enjoy reading my work. Comments are valued extras :-)
Interesting that you expected the plot to go in different directions - obviously I knew from the start where I was going, and didn't consciously set out to set up possible alternatives. What did you think might happen?

OK, I'm back to deliver that long-form flail comment I promised in addition to my short-form flail. :-) And the first thing that I wanted to say to you is that certainly made the wait worth the while. Your 11K+ words just flew by, I was so engrossed by the story. The pacing is superb. Now, on with the quotes! ::g::

though I never pressed, I would not make a chain of our friendship, would have him free to give only what he freely would Poor, long-suffering Watson! Holmes has taken advantage of that generous and forgiving nature on too many occasions, I think.

He would not even allow me to attend to his beestings. Oh, the world of hurt in that simple remark! And then you make it all better by letting us know that the hurt is past, and he is now writing this reminisce for the eyes only of its chief subject (and we are looking over his shoulder as he does ( ... )

And now we get to meet Alice, or, pardon me, Miss L. MacRae. Somehow, she is both as I pictured her and not quite: Lovely, hair still short, suffering from a horrible injury which leaves her in chronic pain, still so very pragmatic and yet giving - running a settlement house for single women striving for independence (an inspired idea). And what a wonderful description of Holmes's face when he sees her again for the first time in a decade. He would have been perhaps more memorable than most to her because of the circumstances, but considering the number of men who must have passed through her life, it doesn't surprise me that she didn't recognize him. That he should immediately know her is also no surprise at all. The relief when he realizes she doesn't remember him is palpable. I love that she is not all that impressed by him (love Holmes's description of Watson's introductory style ::g::) and that she can still rival Holmes in deductive power as evidenced by her assessment of Watson's interest, and Holmes knows it too, for he ( ... )

A train of thought is not a domesticated beast. It gallops away along a track quite of its own devising before one can rein it in or direct its course. Miss McRae seemed merely to enjoy my discomfiture for a while and to picture us both, back in the old century. Then she suddenly turned with narrowed eyes to Holmes, whose face, I saw, had lost most of its colour save for a telltale smudge of crimson across each cheekbone.

“Mother Mary.”

She remembered. Worse, he knew it.

“And you.” She looked back to me, a babe in my innocence. “You’re John. You’re John. My God, of course you are.” Oh, this is perfect. The opening sentence is a wonder, as is the moment that she twigs to who she has in front of her, though I confess my surprise that she would voice it aloud. And that exchange between her and Holmes about trust - emotional impact like a slap to the face followed by a kiss on the brow. She is still magnificent, your Miss MacRae, too much so not to linger on Watson's mind, until he gets to the bottom of what is going on here.

But ( ... )
