The sense of desolation is almost audible. Extremely well-written, this is. And since Christina Rossetti is one of my favorite poets, the way you worked her poem into the story's ending tightened the warp and weft to a perfection. Thanks for posting this - I'm saving it to my favorites.
I enjoyed it short story very much. You wrote the story so carefully and the emotions of the characters were very real. But, It seems as if the story is too short. I don't know why, but I would like to know more about why she killed herself. Why did her mother die? How was was the father effected by it and how did he treat his daughter after his wife's death, that made her feel so alone?
