Literally got an offer from another agent within minutes of her FR, so sent ms and advised of offer
11/10/19 One of the kindest step asides ever. She loved a lot but was happy I found someone to champion in a way she couldn't. She seems lovely!

No go. A very quick response. A very quick form "no." Too bad. I didn't get the chance to tell her the main character is in part named after her. : )
