Rejection on partial, with very thoughtful and personalized feedback. Echoing what others have said below, but Genevieve was very professional and kind to work with and I'm grateful for the time she and Amy took with my submission.

Disappointed, but thankful for the email Genevieve Gagne-Hawes' (Writer House editor) sent today. I truly appreciate how professional and personal the interactions with them have been during the querying process—which, at times, can be somewhat soul-crushing. Anyone who gets to work with these folks should consider themselves quite fortunate.
