Two thousand and thirteen.
I can say the first half was a disaster while the second half was magical.
Misery and miracle on the same breath. The good girl won because she dared to hope. The year ended with something unexpected and of course the princess lived happily ever after. End of chapter.
Come two thousand and fourteen.
Today is the very first page of the 365-page book. The cover is purple velvet and the spine strong. On the skin behind the cover you can see Ptolemy’s vintage map and you know you’re in it for the ride.
It’s going to be an epic read.
