I love this story. So poignant. I kept guessing which reality was real until the very end. I love how so-called cousin Ruby was revealed to be more than I expected at the beginning.
Compelling! I couldn’t stop reading it. You’ve written a terrific story. I was captivated by the alternate worlds and left wondering…which of them was reality if either was? Great job!
