Her rejection was super polite.
"Do not be discouraged! Your work is meaningful and someone out there is waiting for it. Although I am not giving specific feedback on queries at this time, the largest reason I turn down work is simply because it does not fit with the list I already have. This often means I have the misfortune of rejecting brilliant work.

Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries."
