Title: Chapter 1: A Mouthful of Regret Reviewer: littlejoenice Signed

I don't usually read anything above the PG rating, sometimes not even that. But this one was different. I loved the way the Cartwright family is portrayed in this story.

Everything is so clear and vivid. Their family bond, not matter what happens, remains strong and steady in spite of their differences. No matter what was said, they were always forgiven in the end. I wish this would've been an episode. Thanks!

I love this, Patina. I can just picture that race in my mind, Marie's fear that it was her doing, her encouragement that caused him to become hurt. Then Hoss' innocent questions about babies! Classic! Thank you so much.

Wow. Who knew that Adam felt this way toward Marie? I would've expected he'd be happy to have a mother. Guess things aren't always what they seem.

So very sweet. I'm glad Adam kept his head about him in a situation such as this.



Author's Response:

Adam was always so dependable and cool-headed! I like to think his little brother appreciated those traits, even though Joe may not have admitted it very often. Thank you for reading and reviewing, littlejoenice!

What a crazy way to try to get a man to marry her, especially Adam! I'm glad her brother was able to help Adam before he walked down the aisle! Terrific tale, Terina. You had me on edge for quite a while.

Well, Patina, all I can say is, this sure wasn't like anything I could've imagined.  Joe's scheming once again got them in trouble. It's just like him to get to the men by using their wives or girlfriends.



Author's Response: Thank you, littlejoenice. Joe just can't help himself when the opportunity for a scheme arises (lol). I'm glad to know you enjoyed this story.

"Everything he is, everything he has been, and everything he ever will be, is right here, and right now." 

This story in a way, rings true. Joe could never be anyone except who he was. The youngest in a family that were bound to the land, and to each other. This was really nice.



Author's Response:

littlejoenice, you  have summed up the entire story perfectly! Thanks so much for reading and providing such a NICE review!

Hoss waited so long to get that kinfe, and then he turns around and gives to a boy who has hardly anything. That's Hoss for you. Sweet, darling, generous, caring Hoss.
