I always enjoy stories that make women heroes. Anise did a great job of being a soldier. It is unfortunate she had to hide the fact that she was a woman. I guess back in that time women were no more than a baby maker.

Great job with the prompt. I enjoyed your piece. It is well written and I think you presented the accent well. Something not everyone could accomplish.

Fun read! I like how the brother turned I to a ghost, following his sister and how the sister became a spy. πŸ™‚

I loved this, and the characters! I thought the tone and details of the time, war, the taking care of the sick, and even the voice of the narrating ghost were spot on. There were a few places where a word was missing, or the wrong word was used, but overall I thought it was written well. Great job! πŸ™‚ I’m very curious what will happen to β€œArny” next!
