Very interesting question.
It was very mysterious how Joseph had contact with his granddaddy who passed away even before when he was born. I remember the scenes when M. had his old desk brought in the house, and young Joseph sat under it to call his granddaddy. His ghost appeared to him, and have conversations with him although J. had never seen him alive...
In this story perhaps you could give your readers a gimpse on what the children eventually will become later, when they will be grown up... I mean what their interests and their secrets dreams are.
Worried about the first few ... wondering about the ghost...as long as it's a nice one, it's ok . A party is always fun. But the ones who follow to that got me confused What did you do?!?
The heart, white horseand house are alright, I hope*fingers crossed* (will sully swipe her of her feet )The train he's leaving.
Still trying to figure out what the next are.. lol And the last part, well what can I say about that
