I know it has taken me a while but I have finished reading the two parts of your story The Fortune Seekers
and I have to tell you that I have found it a great story. It defintely held my interest and I found that it was easy to get engaged and involved with the main characters inspite of them being my ancestors. I felt the emotional aspect of Daniels earlier life was understandable considering life at that time in history and the huge impact and power religion and churches held during those times. It must have been quite a challenge to portray Daniels emotions and thoughts in words. I have really enjoyed following his and Charlottes journey through their early life and look forward to reading how different life will be for both of them now that they are both on Australian soil and of course how their romance works out.
