Today I just flipped through the pages and came upon page 136. Haha, I would have also tried licking/eating the walls.
“Winter is our true reigning king. It’s long, dark and seemingly eternal. We won’t see a glimpse of sun for several moontides now. Besides which, the walls are enchanted; they cannot melt.”
Marietta was bewitched; magic was ingrained into the very fabric of this world.
“The palace, the gingerbread chalets and huts in the town, the marzipan whirls of apartment suites and cobblestones, all of it is locked in an immutable state. Spellbound to remain frozen.

If she cut her tomorrow, Georgiana would have to spend the rest of the summer – perhaps the rest of her life – embroidering pastel coloured nightmares in Mrs Burton’s parlour, reminiscing about the few glorious days she had spent in the company of the esteemed Miss Campbell.
