A new world for the reader.  One of the most important elements in fiction—and one not understood by so many new writers—is that a novel should give readers something to look at and wonder about, something different from their ordinary lives.  

Your novel is exotic, and your characters are compelling. It is a big Dickens-like wonderful mix of elements. It’s a combination coming of age and historical novel. The characters’ personalities and backgrounds are strong and fascinating. There’s an excellent soap opera element to Forget Me Not: one darn thing after another keeps happening The reader never knows quite what’s going to happen next in Forget Me Not, which is excellent. You are a talented writer.
