“Nailing It!” Comment Section Explodes!

Do you belong to a book club? Do you love to read and discuss what you read with people who think a bit differently than you do?

Story Chat takes about a minute to read. Then you make a comment, which takes about forty-four seconds – that’s about the average stay for one person on my site. (I know it’s pathetic, but it is what it is. You guys are fast readers and I post a lot of pictures.)

So here it comes, a sweet love story with mother problems – dead mother problems. And then Hugh Roberts steps in to comment, and trashes the poor lady! (With good reasoning – trust me) Now there’s a debate going on in Story Chat, and even if you don’t usually read Story Chat, I want you to weigh in.

“As soon as I knew that Evie’s mother was dead and that she was hearing her voice in her head, mental health problems came to mind. Probably because I recently listened to a radio show about people who hear voices in their head and how it’s often connected to mental health. It makes me wonder if Ted is indeed a lucky man having married Evie? And (according to her mother’s voice) hadn’t she strayed from a marriage once before? Whist I condemn violence of any kind, is that why Reverend Derek had hit her when he found out that Evie had been unfaithful?

Looks like I’m going down a different path here and thinking Evie is beating herself up for the person she really is.”

  1. I read the story and couldn’t find any place to comment — so I’ll put my comment here.

    Evie’s mother was a wicked b!#ch. I’ve seen enough of them to know the havoc they cause within their families. It’s easy to get mired in the negativity of a controlling person. For Evie, each “nail” in the coffin was a milestone. Her early life showed that she had strength, but not enough experience to physically fight off the psychological tendrils put onto her by her mother at an early age. In fact, she did what most people do — married someone just like her mother (or father, had he lived long enough to have that kind of influence over her). But once her mother was dead, and she was free of the house that bound her, it was only a matter of time before the mental chains could be cast off, too.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
