Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Lisal Signed

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. :)

Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Tracy Signed

This story, written for an autumn challenge, is a prequel filled with the things fans love about Bonanza - family, values, and a brother's love.

 

The episodes gave us little about Ben's third wife, Marie, and Sierras has given her and young Adam a voice as they meet one another and learn to live as a family. 



Author's Response: Thank you, Tracy. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I wanted to fill in a little about Marie's history. Thank you for your review. :)

Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Tahoe Lee Signed

I really enjoyed this story.  Love the backstory on Marie. 

The letter was so good.  That must have been shocking.  I really felt for all of them.

A family in transition in never easy.  You take us deep into their hearts. 

Love Adam's POV.

I could picture the beautiful scenery.  Good descriptive writing.

A touching and totally 'Bonanza' ending.

Well done!

Thank you, Tahoe Lee. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I agree a family in transition is never easy. I'm glad you love Adam's POV. I thought a lot about how Adam is as a young child in the Inger episodes and how he is as an adult in the series. Thank you for your review. :)

Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Sharry Signed

Sweet story, Sierras. 

I've always thought Adam might have had a hard time adjusting to a new step mother by the time Marie came into his life.  Although young, Adam had already been through so much when his father remarried after Inger's death.  I somehow think a much younger Adam would have eventually warmed up to Marie - he was likely quite a sensible young man overall. 

Marie certainly had her work cut out for her.  Your story created a perfect connection through the gift of the journaling for Adam to connect with Marie.         

Thank you for a fun read.  :)  

 



Author's Response: Thank you, Sharry. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I agree Adam would have had a difficult time adjusting to a a new stepmother. Thank you for your review. :)

Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Pt29646 Signed

This story is a reminder of how surprised Adam must have been when Ben married Marie. Well done!



Author's Response: Thank you, Pt29646. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Yes I agree Adam must have been very surprised. Thank you for the review. :)

Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: littlejoenice Signed

I can imagine Adam being a bit angry with Marie, feeling that she was trying to take the place of someone he'd loved very much, and who had loved him in return. But somehow, Marie managed to win him over, and I think they'll now have a wonderful relationship.

Marie knew just what to get Adam for his birthday, as did his father. I think he'll have lots to write about.



Author's Response: Thank you, littlejoenice. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I can imagine Adam distrusting Marie at first. Yes I also believe he will have lots to write about. Thank you for your review. :)
