Well you pass the alertness test, Hawden! :) Thanks for picking that up, and for the revised chapter. :)

I am half way through reading my chapter - and I've had to stop so that our dog can bark at the fox in the sheep field at the bottom of the garden. I just want to say (again) ISN'T THIS A WONDERFUL STORY. (And I am SO lucky to have had so many great chapters to read!! And in this chapter is the wonderful moment when John and Bella are reunited!!! :thumbs:
Both had expected to see something very different from the real Lizzie Hexam, and thus it fell out that she became the unconscious means of bringing them together.
I think the fox has gone now!!! - any remaining background barking is someone else's dog.

Why is it that every chapter seems to be the best!!!!?

I have read OMF many times, listened on tape and video many more times; much as I love the book I have always felt Bella's 'coming round' to be a little contrived. Now, having read the chapter aloud I understand that it was my understanding, not Dickens' craftmanship, that was at fault.

In 3:9 (when read carefully) Dickens clearly makes Bella's change of heart believable and a reasonable reaction to her experiences. And it has been a GREAT pleasure to read. Thank you, thank you, thank you once again, opheliad, for master-minding this wonderful project.

I will edit my chapter tomorrow!

Hi all,

Just wondering who is doing the editing? A quick skim through the magic box, and it seems most edits are minor and easily done. What's the plan? I mean, it wouldf be great if we could catalogue it this weekend.

David
