The song, our song, has not changed, but simply been added to, she is like tones simultaneous sounding which enriches our song.

A beautiful introduction into the Lomesdown family. At first I thought it was a story that was about Iris, but something tells me this was just a prelude to Harmony's adventures! I almost clicked on next chapter, but I thought lets drop you a note first.

I just happened upon this story and when I read your intro I thought "Now that's not fair - I'll review it!" cause I know how I feel waiting for reviews and it is almost painful, isn't it? So I've started and I think this is great! I love music (have led praise and worship at church almost 15 years) and you have introduced such a lovely character in Iris, and a sweet, shy one in her husband. When the kids came along, I loved their names - so fitting for their mother, whom they complete (along with Till). They have such a happy life and now it looks as though the bad times are upon them. Don't be discouraged, you are a fine writer...I have all of a sudden happened on 3 different stories at this site that are non-canon character-centric (that's the long way of saying the main characters are OC's LOL) and they have turned out to be wonderful! I'm off to ch. 2....

Author Reply: Oh my, how on earth did you stumble upon this story? I'm so thrilled that you took the time to review. I just hope you stick with it. It gets a bit dark for a while, but gets better in the end, which, by the way, I have yet to write, but having a new reader may inspire me. My music background is a B.A. in Instrumental music. This particular story has been a hard one for me to write. I have 2 others, Servant of Elbereth and Seedlings that came out of me in almost perfect form. This one is fighting me though. It was originally supposed to be a short story, but grew, and then it went places i didn't intend for it to go. Even now i think there are things i wish i had done differently. Ah well, I am rambling.
If you like non Cannon characters, I HIGHLY recommend an author on this site that goes by the name Leaward. She writes about the rangers.
Thanks again so much for reviewing. I truly appreciate it. As soon as I get a chance, I'll return the favor and pop over to read some of your stories. (unfortunately, i don't have nearly the amount of time i would like for reading, so be patient with me ;))
