I’m currently re-reading Goose Girl on my Kindle as I am currently between books and felt like a comfort read.
And I forget what a strong story it is and how fantastic a writer Shannon Hale is.
This paragraph made my heart soar:
“I guess I never really knew what it meant, I just thought it was beautiful. I remember when my mother overheard my aunt tell me a story like that one, my mother was mad. But my aunt said, if we don’t tell strange stories, when something strange happens we won’t believe it.”
