Thanks so much @kay95 I tried to not put more language like the time period because I actually had put it in there, but my friends complained said they didn't understand it. So it's confusing and I get that. :) Thank you for commenting I loved the critisism most people don't say how they think so thank you so much! :)) You've made my month honestly!!!! :D

Oh I loved it! :D
It was so good! Made me laugh, made me wish to jump into the story and take Roslyn's place ;) It was really well written :) I applaud *claps*
Hmmm maybe a little more of the old time language weaved throughout it would help with the implied time it's set in..? Either way, i love it!
Keep writing! :D I'm on my way to explore some of your other work :)

Lost kitten,

Thanks so much Meme! I do know I have a lot of grammar and spelling work to work on, and most of the stuff I post on here, is just rough drafts, and I'm acutally working on a novel that is inspired around this story, the charaters are different and the idea is similar and changed... Idk how to explain but I do have the first I think 8 chapters put up here if you'd like to check it out. I thank you for leaving your comments, it really made my day :) Thanks for reading!

Wow this story is really well written other than the few mistakes in spelling and grammar. You have really nice ideas and a great sense of that romantic writing style. I honestly wished the story had more to it though, perhaps more complications. Other than that, brilliant! (:

Thanks! I love how STRAIGHT forward you were with me, and I just was told yesterday by my teacher that I've been spelling straight wrong all my life, and I'm 17 hahahah :D sooo huge fail on my part. Um, I've been working on my dialog alot and I've edited this since I put this on, and I think it's alot better, I know I sound like Jane Austen, and I think it's because I'm in loooove with this time period, and her work. I'm not intentionally trying to sound like her, I'm trying to be myself, and write the time period I like, but I see what you mean :)) I'm working on a novel in this time period, and have the draft on here, I'm sure I have the same problems but my teacher will pick it up when she reads it lol she's my editor.. lol. but thanks so much for the construtive critisism and I'm glad you liked it!

I think you have a really good start and some potential.  But your work comes across to me as if you are trying to hard to be jane austen.  Also, you sometimes switch from past tense to present.  And some of your words were wrong, like "strait" instead of "straight" and "purpose" instead of "propose".  I also think you should work on your dialogue, because it seems to switch a lot from old British speaking to modern terminology.  Other than that, you have some strong characters and the mind of a writer.  Keep writing!
