“That's the trouble with loving a wild thing: You're always left watching the door.”
Edith Pattou, East

“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

“And telling a story, I suppose, is like winding a skein of spun yarn- you sometimes lose track of the beginning.”
Edith Pattou, East
