You have a real gift. Please keep writing (but you don't need me to tell you that!) I loved the detail, the pace and how you didn't fall for a cliched end. Strong stuff.

Oh, wow, my husband I I often drive about the US on roadtrips and we have also taken the train a few times. Besides a good story and excellent writing, you got the venue down perfectly. Thank you!! And I agree with Roger's statement, the wealth of the detail really validates the story!

I really think this is a fine debut. It's so much more than simple travelogue, but the wealth of traveller's detail gives a real ballast for floating the story of Rose's emotional journey. The fragile bond with Antoine (and the ambiguous nature of his background - and health even) are so true to the nature of such fleeting relationships.
