I love Morrie more and more with each installment. I wonder why he never married, would've made a great husband...

From today's installment I'm gathering that he had been seeing someone or even engaged , back in Barberton, and something went wrong and he got his heart broken.

That's what it seemed to me too. Whoever that anonymous girl was, she passed up a gem.

Morrie who says he isn't wise, ah what a wise one.
Leo lays tefillin, laden with emotion and meaning , it is exquisitely written.

Here we go, heading into the next round of repetition / suspense....
Great writing, I grant you, but I was really hoping we'd go in a different direction, not more of Birdie having to therapize someone.
The last line threw me off. Is Leo there or is she talking to herself?
Is Birdie gonna end up getting divorced from Harry and marrying Leo? or Morrie? taht would be interesting.
Also, I can't believe the whole thing has just been THREE MONTHS!!!!
To be honest, how deep a connection can you form with your spouse in just 3 months?
How tight is really Birdie's bond with Harry?
She deserves better. She should marry Morrie Very Happy.

No. She deserves exactly what she got!! I'm not sure who's worse off...
Morrie is way way too good for her also. And why should he marry an old spinster who doesn't say the truth? Wink

My thoughts exactly!
Will Harry divorce her and she'll marry Leo?
She has some nerve, this Birdie, to go and commit such a crime and then not only feel bad, but sort of put the blame on both of them and on him for being upset that she's not perfect, rather than not being Beile. Chutzpah!
I also couldn't believe this whole thing happened in 3 months but then again Gella's labor lasted a few weeks... Smile

I think Harry's nature complements hers very well. With Morrie, I cant see them bring out the best (or worst) in each other.

The Beile Harry really knows and loves is Birdie. He never knew the real Beile. He never loved her. What is he so upset about? His nature is not to sit on things so much. I dont feel this stewing runs in line with his character.
Am I the only one not getting it?

I think he's not really stewing he's more like 'OMG this goes against all my programming no idea how to deal with this' kind of thing? Like she says in this chapter she represented a lot of what he viewed as good in himself so finding this all out is a lot for him to handle and he's never so good with emotions

I'm so happy I stuck through this serial through thick and thin, because it's really paying off. This week was just beautiful.
I do have a hard time believing that Leo was able to have such a change of heart and be able to speak to Harry in the mode he did, so quickly after months of suffocating rage against Harry.
But it was beautiful nevertheless.
I'm imagining it's starting to wrap up now.

The serial is amazingly breath-taking. It's still getting better and better each week.
I did NOT see this coming!!!!

On another note- Is Harry gonna ever ask Birdie who she really is? He's not curious??

Hidden: 

Hmmmm, think this was inspired by "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant???



I totally didn't see that ending coming!

And its a WRAP!!!

Ok Etka G-
First of all thanks so much for finishing off with Morrie. I was hoping you wouldn't leave him hanging. He deserves it. We're all so happy for him!

Next- How old is Birdie?!?!?

What happens to Leo now? I have a soft spot for him somehow...
I wish he could settle down and find true happiness

I totally thought the last chapter would hint to Birdie being pregnant Wink

And finally- Thanks so so much for such an amazing story. It was truly one of your bests ever! It kept me riveted week after week.
I really don't want to part with these characters. I feel like I know them so well.
Please write about them sometime again...

I'll miss you all!

And I gotta say Harry and Birdie are truly a great match after all!

Oh- and I loved the ending where Harry and Issy meet. It had me chuckling of how "Harryish" it was! He'll never change!

Beautifully wrapped up!
I'm so glad I came along for this bumpy ride!
Closure for all! (except Leo?)

I still can't believe we never get to know Birdie's real name!!!!

Is it Faigie, maybe?

Looking forward to the Epilogue / Making Of, next week, I hope!

What they said! Very very well done. I am often disappointed by endings, but this was so satisfying what with the Morrie follow-up and the adorable personality-filled flashback to top it all off and keep the resolution from being too wound-down. Lovely. Standing ovation here.
