The War Years were an awesome series of chapters, great job! It was really interesting seeing how the war effected them all in different ways. I almost teared up at the tragedies, so you should be proud of yourself for such amazing storytelling.
As for the chapters that followed, man, Rosalie is like a one woman baby boom, isn't she? Shame about Bruce, but there had to come a time for Rosalie to realise life just isn't going to be perfect, no matter what you do. What I wondered is whether or not some of her kids would feel ignored or left out, given how many of them there are.
I still feel sad for Dotty. She may be doing what she wants, travelling the world, but she's still sort of alone, bless her.
I'm not sure how to feel about Mary. I mean, she's obviously got good intentions (in a way) - to build a strong and respectable family name - but I do feel like it'll all come crashing down. In some ways, she reminds me of Rosalie. And she's not into Steven for Steven, which makes me sad - he deserves someone who loves him! He also needs to live for himself rather than his duties, the poor boy.
I'm rooting for Peggy & Doug, not going to lie. I have no reason to dislike Bobby, but I'm still rooting for Doug.
I'm loving the idea of Nettie as some sort of hippy, I will admit, though, that I immediately thought of Jenny from Forrest Gump! I'm looking forward to seeing how things actually turn out.
I'm not very good at American history, being British and all, so all I know is we're roughly in the late 50s/early 60s now (right?) but I look forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve.
