I enjoyed this story of Amanda's crossing! I felt I got to see a little into her character, hopes and fears. A lot of our people made that journey--was she your great-grandma? If so, collect all the information on her that you can and do her the honor or writing her story, start to finish. You have a good beginning right here!

I can really see this being developed into a work of historical fiction for kids - Amanda's Crossing.

(Read "Mother to Tigers" and "Bicycle Madness" to get a feel for what I am suggesting.)

Great work!

The two friends spoke perfect English when speaking to one another (as the writer has written)- so it was difficult to understand what the language problem was. Due to this perfect English, it didn't seem realistic to me....(but then that is just one reader's opinion) Thanks for sharing.
