    LOVE this piece Margaret! You’ve managed to capture a culture and place, and fill it with believable characters and feeling. Good job!

    Great tale of love and loss, a most powerful effect when she smashed the watch, no way to turn back time, brilliant!

    A wonderful story. Lot of such accidents occur in India and most of them are not reported as they mine illegally. The poor people die and nobody cares. I find the emotions are the same; a poor illiterate indian mother or a mother in developed USA. I found this magazine accidentally. Now on I will read it regularly. I loved the story, specifically the untold emotions and the heart wrenching tale.

    Short stories don’t get any better than this. The attention to detail, the realism and the convincing personalities make it come to life.

    I love this. My husband’s family is from the mountains of NC, and I attended Appalachian State University. The mountains are full of stories like these–painful, beautiful.
