it was amazing
Read in June, 2011

I really loved the original story of "East O' the sun, West O' the moon", and a sucker for any book related to this enchanting story. So when I heard about East, I didn't even think twice before buying that book and started reading it. And totally fell in love with it. Completely different from the original story, but in a way, I liked it much better. Plus, the story is much more adventurous and magical, with a somewhat similar concept. Nonetheless, I loved it! I really am looking forward to reading more books by Edith Pattou.

Quotes Mina Liked

Edith Pattou
“East of the sun and west of the moon.' As unfathomable as the words were, I realized I must figure them out, reason it through. For I would go to this impossible land that lay east of the sun and west of the moon. From the moment the sleigh had vanished from sight and I could no longer hear the silver bells I knew that I would go after the stranger that had been the white bear to make right the terrible wrong I had done him.... All that mattered was to make things right. And I would do whatever it took, journey to wherever I must, to reach that goal.”
Edith Pattou, East
