I am in Chapter 2. Olivia and I had a long talk about the nature of the Wood Between the Worlds. Five and three-quarter year olds have a surprisingly deep understanding of metaphysics.
From Chapter 2:
The faint colors that a sunrise can add to countryside often reveal a beauty unseen by day. As Mabel took in the view about her, she knew this land would hold its luster in any light. The oldest trees, majestic, craggy, and strong, placed a generous distance apart and separated by verdant green, rolling hills peopled her view.
