This is such a sweet story, Sierras. I can totally understand Adam's apprehension and stand offishness with Marie. That is a tough age to be dealing with things like grief and loyalty and death etc... You took a really hard subject matter and made it very touching. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you, Lisal. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Adam would definitely have a tough time with having a new stepmother. Thank you for the review. :)
