Hi Jeanne,

This is .good. Your have both an ingoing and an outgoing trigger, and they’re both perfectly natural, pulling the reader into the flashback, and then drawing us out again.

The flashback itself is good, in that you have a lot of info there, but it would be greatly improved if you added a little more atmosphere–some setting, and a few sensory details to really put your reader into it.

Good job!
