I really liked this chapter. It is very captivating.
The way you describe the surroundings and their feelings are very beautiful. It's so...poetic...and personally, one of my favourites.
As for the plot so far, it kept me on the edge of my seat. The development is nice and slow, adding to the mystery.
All in all, I really liked it.
You are a great writer! Keep it up!

On break from school and finally getting to read it. Very intricate, detailed writing. The last line is very sad but with all that was said you have to keep reading to find out more about Susan. Great chapter one!

This first chapter is definitely quite captivating and immerses the reader into your world via very descriptive writing. You can feel the pain and conflict between the characters and even the disparity between the world itself, one moment bleak and desolate, and the next filled with light and life. I'm very interested to see how the rest of this story unfolds, especially given that last sentence.

Great opening chapter. Very powerful, and quite sinister in places too. I will look forward to finishing this throughout the week.

This is an outstanding introduction. It's stunningly bleak, yet thoughtful. Your fantastic descriptions really paint a vivid picture and your characters are far from two-dimensional. I'll be keeping an eye on this one!

Aww, poor Susan. It was a good start to the story and I am looking forward to finding out what happens next; especially with the next potential meeting between Susan's cold-hearted father and Sam. Thank you for creating this mysterious, alluring story...
