After William Shakespeare dies, what happens to his family? Since he was the only person bringing in the money for the family, his mother and sister are now in serious debt. Mrs. Shakespeare is left with no choice but to force her daughter Anne into an extremely unappealing marriage. Will Anne have the strength to run away with her love, or will she be trapped forever?

This story was great! I fell in love with Tim at once. I actually did a lot of research on Shakespeare for my book, "The Secretary" (it's set in Elizabethan England and Shakespeare is a character). His family actually lived in Stratford-upon-Avon, not London, and he hardly saw his daughters. Anyway, is there more to this story? Can't wait!!!

This IS wonderfully written, but...I think it could be a little more descriptive. Describe the surroundings a little more, make it a little more vivid...and also, when she meets Ralph, could you have her actually meet him? Actually talk to him? Instead of just having him snub her mother, she could share a few words with him and THEN decide that he was an absolute pig. Or something. (: But really, I think your book is really good. (:

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. " --Marianne Williamson

That was amazing! I kept forgetting you were a teenager writing it, great job!

Great job! I've put part of my novel from the Tudor age up, and it's interesting to see what the era looks like in someone else's views :)
