Adamant you continue to add to the variety of themes to your stories. This is a beautiful and moving story with a the haunting feel of a medieval troubadour's tale.

The OC character of Cecile is seen through Adam's eyes and although you can understand his attraction to her you always have the feeling something is strange about her, words such as ethereal and fey kept coming to mind as I read as well as visions of the Lady of Shallot.

The other characters reactions particularly Ben and Cecile's parents add to the mystery.

At the end part of me wanted Cecile's parents to agree to Adam's request but the pragmatist in me agreed with them. 

As ever Adamant captures the canon characters perfectly particularly Ben's concern and frustration in trying to understand Adam's feelings for the girl.

I highly recommend this unusual love story.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for the flattering review and the recommendation. I almost wrote this as a fairy tale but felt that it worked better as an actual story but with mystcal overtones. I'm pleased that Cecile came off as an almost otherworldly creature--not completely of this earth.

Funny that you mentioned "The Lady of Shalott" because I almost entitled it "The Mirror Cracked from Side to Side," or "Tired of Shadows" but "The Mirror Cracked" is the name of an Agatha Christie novel (actually based on a true experience of actress Gene Tierney's) so I passed it up and just settled for using the OC's name. 


Thank you for reading and telling me (and others) that you liked it.

Title: Cecile Reviewer: Angelface1961 Signed

Read this as a WIP and Miss Cecile leaves you wondering until the very end.  Her mystical, almost magical side adds a whimsy to this tale that is unusual in an Adamant story (although you will find from her early work till now she is getting softer). It is understandable how Cecile would intrigue Adam and her total adoration of him from a young age is understable. The interaction between brothers and Ben is episode worthy.

Definitely worth the read.

Author's Response:

Thank you, AF, for the lovely review and for recommending the story. I appreciate that you stated that you thought the dialogue was "episode worthy." (And the main reason you and I understand Cecile's adoration of Adam is that we feel the same way! :-D )

Title: Cecile Reviewer: alice Signed

A very moving story. But I don't think it was for the best, to take Cecile away from Adam. If I was him I would always have the feeling of having deserted her. But thank you for the story!


Author's Response:

Thank you, alice. I tried to suggest that Adam does feel as if he deserted her--he is haunted by her the rest of his life. I appreciate that you took the time to comment.

Title: Cecile Reviewer: Tracy Signed

Adamant has written a mysterious tale of infatuation, attraction, and love.

Cecile is a character who, under different circumstances, would become endearing to the readers. But in this tale, hints about her unknown past lead us to wonder if she's the "one" for Adam after all.

With three OCs, each one revealing a little of their past together, Adamant has written a story that includes the traditional brotherly banter, rivalry, and caring qualities that we love. Ben is true to form, his concerns always seeded in his love for his sons.

Thank you for another wonderful story!

Author's Response:

Thank you, Tracy, for such an insightful review. There are reservations about Cecile and I dropped hints for the reader to pick up--which you did. Thank you again for saying what you thought about the story and for reading it.
