I cannot express how much I loved this story! Your characters were fresh and exciting and you opened a whole new world to your readers. Thank you! I keep wondering though if Bella and Edward will ever return. Most wo made that voyage didn't, and some that began it never finished it. I have ancestors who made that journey. Out of 12, the father was buried at sea from typhus and upon arriving in New Orleans, his wife and 6 of the children died. Only 4 sons remained alive and they split up and went their seperate ways and formed the family we have today.
It would also be wonderful to know if Bella's dreams came true and she was able to give Edward children. Again, thank you for a marvelous read!
Yes the trips were quite grim, I did a little research as I was writing it was very interesting, fanfiction has improved my knowledge of history!! Your family history sounds interesting.
At the end of the story I did hint at them returning to tell of their adventures to their children and family, so I want you to believe they do get their HEA, I love a good HEA ;)
Thanks for your lovely review xx

Really mixed feelings about this last one! Happiness that Edward and Bella are wed in the gypsy way, and are working together. Sadness that they have no child of their own and are setting off for America, leaving their loved ones behind. Well, as they both said, it's not forever, and they will be back one day. I'll think of them that way, having a good, useful life and seeing all the family again! Thanks so much for such a wonderful tale, I look forward to another from you!
I do hint at the end that they have their own children, when they return and tell of their adventures to their own children and family ... makes it all happy again? :)
Thank you for your lovely reviews and support xx

Great story!!! I loved the ending and in my mind once they get to America they will have a family of their own.
Looking forward to your next project.
Thank you, yes, I hinted at the end they told their adventures in the new world to their children and family when they returned and they lived very happy ever after **sigh**
Thanks again xx

This was a wonderful story. I hope you continue with their adventures in America
If a strong enough stroy line does pop into my head I would love to continue their adventures....lots of scope in the new world...hmmm... now I'm thinking!

That ending was so sweet and just so perfect, and so romantic! Rosalie and Emmett's wedding sounded just like them, and it's great that Mrs. Hale is going to hang on to see her grandchild! In a way, I'll be sorry to see the end of this lovely story, but hope you will write lots more!

And a very lovely surprise it was, too! It's a little sad to hear that only two chapters remain, and then we'll read no more of Bella and Edward, Emmett and his Rose, Jasper , Alice and all the rest. It was so touching to read of the burning of the caravan, save for the few small tokens they rescued. It's a great new life the two siblings will have, but you can't help but think of the old days, now and then!

I loved the extra chapter! Thank you! It was especially touching and moving to me having lost both my parents some time ago. What makes it especially touching is not only the simplicity of what they found and treasured, but their choice of life over death. The pain could have made them shut down emotionally, but they each chose to honor their past by living their futures. Kudos! You have a real winner here!
Thank you for the heartfelt review and sharing a little bit of yourself, I did try for simple and touching, I'm glad I achieved it.xx

Bella can be in no doubt as to Esme' s feelings towards her now. She certainly stood up for her future daughter-in-law, leaving no question but she cares for her. It was cute how she threatened the two of them if they dared get pregnant before the wedding. Gossip is such an ugly, hurtful thing, I hate it!

ooo go esme get em told they defo won't gossip again,fab chapter.bet edwards face was a pic lol.update soon
I love Esme with bite, I can just imagine Edward's face when he gets into trouble with his mum

Thy proposal at Alice and Jasper's reception was lovely, especially since Edward's mother was all for it. Too bad Tanya couldn't leave the area without spreading her poison, like the snake she is! Wait until Edward hears about this vicious lie!
Tanya never does anything without being horrid! Thanks for the review and the wonderful support you've given me xx
Date: 21 Sep 2012 8:23 PM Title: Chapter 24
You deserve to be reviewed this is a great story and right now I would love to pull Tanya's face off what an evil person. I am so happy the evil sisters where kicked out of the cullen.
Thank you so very much...now go spread the word :) xxx

Unfortunately, people do tend to believe the most lascivious stories. Things might be hard for Bella, but with the family she loves around her, she can't fail. I loved this update and watching Tanya get her comeuppance. Small note: I loved the use of a peridot as Bella's ring. It is my birthstone.
People don't change much do they!
It was great to write Tanya's comeuppance, and it's nice of you to appreciate the peridot, it's always nice when a reader comments on a specific part of the story. xx

Gotta love those large potted plants! Hey can be so convenient! I have a feeling that Tanya may have just dug her own grave, so to speak. Her reputation is shot if Esme reveals what she heard and in those days, no self respecting matron would allow her so to marry an outright gold digger. I can't wait for the steam to rise when the family finds out what happened!!! Kudos!

Jasper and Alice had a lovely wedding, I'm sure, but I can't wait for Bella and Edward's! As I knew she would, Tanya tried to make Bella as miserable as possible. It thrilled me to read that Edward's mother heard the vile words out of Tanya's vicious, nasty mouth! Wait until Edward hears that! Karma is a bitch, Tanya, too bad !
Date: 14 Sep 2012 6:41 PM Title: Chapter 23
It seems the Cullen's put their trust in the wrong people. Look down on Emmett and Bella until they prove themselves, and trust vipers like Tanya and apparently her sister until they prove false; oh the hypocrisy!
Date: 08 Sep 2012 1:21 AM Title: Chapter 21
Tanya is always a problem for Edward, isn't she? I wonder what will have to be confessed to Bella? It shouldn't be that terrible! If love is in the air, why wouldn't Carlisle and Esme be affected? Just because they have been married for a long time only means they know each other well!
Author's Response: Tanya...just a little fly in the ointment.

I was so proud of Bella, defending her man from Leah's depredations! And her declaration ,accepting his proposal, and threatening the other girl, really great! Then to finish it all up in style, they rewarded themselves in such a lovely manner!
Fiesty Bella is great to write and taking charge of Edward...pwoar!!!
Date: 28 Aug 2012 9:16 PM Title: Chapter 19
Oh boy! As I see it, this could go either of two ways. Bella could trust Edward and having seen Leah was up to something before, let her have it, or she could become upset, panic, and run from the room not trusting Edward. (there's every possibility there for her to trip down the stairs and injure herself escaping the situation!). One way or the other, this chapter was wonderful. It filled us in on everyone's emotions, feelings, and activities. It even let us in on the inner Mr. Clearwater! Bravo!
I do like a bravo, thanks for the review and I'm so glad you're enjoying my little romp xxx

WILL BELLA BELIEVE EDWARD WHEN HE TELLS HER HE DIDN'T KNOW LEAH WAS IN HIS ROOM. I HOPE SO, IF SHE DOESN'T IT WILL BREAK HIS HEART AND BELLA'S HEART WILL BE BROKEN AS WELL BECAUSE HER THINKING EDWARD LIED TO HER WILL BE BAD.
Date: 24 Aug 2012 10:27 PM Title: Chapter 19
Leah can sneer all she wants, I have a hunch Bella is about to defend her man's honor! Edward is going to be so glad he confessed all to Bella at the beach, as she already knows why Leah has been pursuing Edward, so that takes away the shock value. It should also negate any nasty little lies Miss Clearwater may throw at her! Can't wait until they tell Leah they are engaged; she will have an absolute fit!
