Wonderful story about moving beyond loss to both literally and metaphorically rebuild your life :)

Everyone suffers loss during their lives.  Working through it can be difficult, almost overwhelming at times but sticking with it can result in a wonderful sense of accomplishment.  This story exemplifies all of that.  I heartily recommend it to everyone.

This distinctive and excellent story is a wonderful sample of Valkyrie's talents to create characters and situations that will move your heart.  The story is short, but very powerful and leaves you feeling warm and satisfied.

Already knowing the quality of Valkyries’s writing I had high expectations and they were met.  I’ve just double checked the length - 5,000 - because it  just flows so quickly and yet with time for the dramatic moments, and there are lots!
another 5* work from this great writer.

well done

When the project of restoring an old house becomes so much more. A story of love lost and found, both house and soul restored, captivating and a wonderful read!

This is a wonderful story of past dreams held from a loving relationship that no longer is, those dreams become the plans for renovating an old house. This isn't just rebuilding a house, it's rebuilding a life with a future and new relationship. This is an uplifting read and very nicely written.

Thank you so much!
