Wow, just read the 30 chapters across two days - I'm hooked! The kids are so sweet.
I started reading this after finishing "stardust" , which I enjoyed equaly as much, when i read the last chapter of beth i was starting to wonder if the two stories will tie in (even though its a split between an alternate universe ... or ... whatever), and Sam nursing Al back to health will be the thing that reunites the family... although i look back now and see that stardust was set in 85, and ch30 is in 82...
anyway, just sharing my musings

keep it coming
- Tess

Helen, Helen, and Tess....thank you so much for the kind words!! I'm so glad you're enjoying the story. And, Tess, I'm glad you enjoyed "Stardust" as well. Different timelines altogether, but stay tuned to "Beth"...

No updates yet but the latest chapter is in the capable hands of my beta's, so....watch this space.

Poor Beth...driving with one child is hard enough...4 would be fantastically difficult!

Really enjoying the story. Looking forward to more!

Thank you, Helen and Tess! Boy you guys hit that quick!!

I am working on the next chapter--a plot bunny scampered across my brain and so yet again I'm finding myself with a chapter not originally intended to be part of this sequence needing creation. However, the one to follow THAT one is mostly written.

yeah it was a great story, i think i even found it on your list of favourites on your fanfic.net acount. its almost like you've created a sequal to it with beth - i really wanted to read on about what the couple were like as newlyweds but ... it was still a great story - beth is really innocent in it lol.

Stunning as ever Jen.

The contrast between AL's Easter and the one enjoyed by the girls is brilliant.

Poor Al. Poor Sam. Poor Beth.

Poor Helen's heart-strings!

c'mon Jen! september 14th... and it's now, november 1st. give us another dosage
i was reading a novel on holiday that kind of reminded me of this. its called my best friend's girl - a dead easy read. reminded me of this coz the little girl tegan was soo sweet and captured my heart just like bree, shel, theresa and grace did. . . god dont i sound cheesy. anyway. i recomend that book - its by a writer called dorothy koomson, the book's set in england. it's basicaly about 2 best friends, one is dying and asks her best friend to look after her little girl once she's gone... exept it's not that simple ... i couldnt put it down, was captivated and im craving for more. and i also want more beth. so get on with it! lol

The book you are reading sounds like the plot of "Beaches", Tess. Have you seen it? I can recommend it. I originally only watched it cos it had 'Wind Beneath My Wings' in it and I love that song, but it is now one of my fave films of all time. A real 3 hankie weepie!

And Jen, I second Tess' motion - more Beth please, pretty please with a cherry on top.

Aw, you guys are so sweet. I'm very sorry about the delays. I've been kind of mopey the last few weeks with my boyfriend being on convoy security training and now field exercises. I'll see what I can do about getting the next chapter out sometime this month. I've also decided to do the NaNoWriMo but I will do my best, guys.

I am. The guys are all back from FEX now and so I got to see my guy. In a much happier place now. However, I'm behind on my NaNoWriMo goals so far so I have to get busy on that!!! Once I reach my goals I'll take a gander at working some more on BETH.
