Thank you Clara for Bebe, it has to be one of the best stories on this site. These characters are fantastic and I love your writing. As I was reading this chapter I was saying to myself as much as I love these characters in the story, I hope this is the ending because this is a perfect place to end it and I also know that you will come up with another story that is at least just as good. I also want to thank you again for allowing me to use your characters in my story help me out of a brain fog, writiers blocked and allowed me to finish my story. Again I love your characters and you are such a fantastic writer thank you.
Look forward to your next story.

I read chapter 10 last night and thought I’d sleep on it before posting. Why? It brings the curtain down on what has been the most consistently enthralling and entertaining series it’s been my pleasure to read in any genre. In the end it had to be a happy ending, because Bebe, the perfect heroine, deserved nothing less. Alongside her you’ve created a full cast of totally believable characters, each with their own beautifully designed story arc.
It’s been a long and completely satisfying ride. I’m sad it’s over, but so grateful to you for creating the whole glorious saga.
There will never be another character to match her. Thank you, Clara, from the bottom of my heart, xxx
Author's Response: Wow. I am absolutely humbled by this comment. Thank you, Robert Louis, for all of your kind and supportive words. I am so glad that you have enjoyed Bebeís journey as much as I have. I will miss her, too. Thank you, again. TTFN

Chapter 9 was one of the best. Bruce and Cora were great additions. The topics of conversation were real. You want to hate Roses parents but you know that they're just ignorant. Marilyn needs to get over herself. A lot of emotion in your story.
I hope over time I can get as good as you.
Author's Response: Thatís very sweet of you, Amanda. Thank you!

Well, that’s me told! Another extraordinary chapter full of drama from unexpected sources. I’m now trembling about what mightappen at Rose and Ed’s wedding. You’ve done it again, Clara. Superb.
Author's Response: Thank you, Robertlouis! Iím glad you liked it. Thank you for your kind words!

This chapter was totally predictable and totally sappy. Let me also add that it was one of the best written parts of a story/series that I absolutely enjoy!!! Three cheers for Bebe!!!!!
Author's Response: Every now and again, a payoff has to be delivered!

Why does your stories always go by so fast? It seems like I start them and a minute later they are done.
I could feel the emotion
Have you ever thought of writing for a living? I would surely read anything you wrote, you're so good
Author's Response: Thatís very kind of you, Amanda. I donít think that this kind of writing will ever be mainstream, though, and to date, my other writings havenít found an audience.

You’ve surpassed yourself, Clara. What a glorious, soaring, perfect, warm hug of an episode. I think I’m on the same cloud as Bebe and the rest of the cast. What lovely writing. You can tell when something comes straight from the heart, and with you it always does. Wonderful. Thank you yet again. x
Author's Response: Once again, your review is so sweet and supportive. Thank you so, so much!

Bless you Clara. Another fabulous chapter. And for once, no nail biting cliffhangers, but plenty of minor dramas in Bebe’s and other characters lives; important without being histrionic, everyday without being at all humdrum.
You have a rare gift. Never stop writing. And thank you. xxx
Author's Response: Thank you, RobertLouis! You are so nice to me!

Wow, Clara, the way you write make these characters more than just characters in a story. They feel real. I love them. You are such a beautiful writer.
The music you pick is great, I could see Bebe sing and I can see the set. You set the scene but leave it to our imagination to color it in.
I can't wait for the next chapter, my heart skips when I see a new one.
Author's Response: Youíre very kind. Thank you for being so supportive!

Dammit, Clara, you’ve done it again. I seem to have something n my eye after that ending.
It’s yet another terrific chapter in the best ever saga. Bebe is just such a thoroughly good, decent human being, surrounded by a robust network of good people whose own goodness is enhanced by her presence in their lives.
You’ve created both a heroine and a story that are very, very special. Bless you. xxx
Author's Response: Awwww, youíre so nice. Thank you.

You’ve done it again, Clara. This battle hardened Celtic musician may have had a little something in his eye reading that song. Beautiful writing as always and the deft way you bring more out of your characters by adding tiny details is a real author’s skill. It’s wonderful. x
Author's Response: Youíre always so sweet to me, Robertlouis. Thank you so, so much. Iím glad you enjoyed the lyrics. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support.

I love these stories and your writing! Just one thought about Bebe, I feel like she's really become a 14yr old and would love to see her show an occasional glimpse of really being mid 20's now and again, just to remind us of this dichotomy. Perhaps even from a feminist perspective? Her intelligence only really shows up when acting.
Author's Response: Great point! Thank you, Laila

I just love, love, love this story. Everything is just so real. Yoqu’re a tremendously skilled writer. Can’t wait for more of Bebe. x
Author's Response: Wow! That review came quickly! Thank you, Robertlouis! Youíre very kind.

A terrific chapter, Clara. You bring such depth to every character and Bebe is indeed the precious glue that holds it all together. And as for the twist at the end, readers all over the globe, like me, are now holding their breath for the next episode.
Thank you. x
Author's Response: Thank you, so much! Youíre very sweet to be so complimentary.

Love the story and characters as always and even she'd a tear or two, but I must say the portending storm clouds at the end were much needed as all the outpouring of love and support were threatening to give me diabetes!
Author's Response: Sorry. It was a challenge to have her tell everyone.

Don't ever be afraid of how you portray Bebe. You created her and she's loved. You did that.
I am so glad to see her back and you as well. Really looking forward to this chapter in Bebe's life. So far so great.
Author's Response: Thank you, Amanda. I just get nervous that things can become mundane or routine, or that Iíll spin her off in a direction that upsets the readers. Thank you for your support!

I love Beeb, and I love how Joanne stands up and becomes her forth third Mom!
Author's Response: I love Bebe, too. Thatís part of the reason for the delay. Joanne has always been watching out for her, in her own way. Thank you for your kind review!
