The imagry in this fic was beautiful - I loved the thought of all the colours and dusty scenery. I have been to Australia only once and that was to Queensland, so it was mainly rainforest and beaches, but I think you've described the out back really well. :) Well, I'm assuming it's in the outback. :o

I loved the flashbacks!


Author's Response: Hee! QLD is a lot of rainforests, especially in the top end, but no; I'm from Sydney and randomly venture into the more bushy parts, so this is a little resemblant of a ranch near me, and also of a property near my refugee in Golburn :) In other words, my bets friend's house & I can't wait to drink at that pub...

I actually got an image of the wild west with this fic.  I wanted to point out that, near the beginning, you mention her eyes being green, but a ghostly gray, too.  I wasn't sure if that was what you meant.  I loved the colors chosen for this story...mostly dusty, non-colors in order to make the vivid ones stand out.  I think it's absolutely fabulous!

Author's Response:

Oh, thanks for the note of the colours! I love contrasting and symbolism.

 The colours were originally meant for the person initially reading it to interpret, so the colour-change or shift in eye colour occasionally was on purpose.

Thanks for the review!

That was absolutely beautiful. The imagery and the raw emotion that was in the piece astounded me. I was a little confused when the flashback came and went but in the end it all made sense to me. So I just want to say that the writing was wonderful, the sadness not too overdone. Hats off to you. Well done

Author's Response: Thanks for the tip about flashbacks. I write how I see, I guess. I'm fairly impatient like that. I'll work on fluidity. Thanks for the review!

This was a wonderful story!  I love the described the sounds and the environment so perfectly that I really got a feel for your protagonist's surroundings.  The sadness and desperation at the beginning was masterfully done, along with the feeling of hope at the end.  Bravo!

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind review! Sometimes I feel I over-do it, but your words are comfort while I wait for the judging for the Writer's Festival :).
