Yes, I've talked about We Have Always Lived in the Castle several times, but I'm really feeling it lately. WHALC so supremely embodies the hyper-isolated sister experience I long for. Secret bower in the woods? Check. Wise cat? Check. Library books? Check. Magic words? Check, check, check. Don't freak out, sisters, but I just may want to poison ancillary people and live in a mansion in the woods with you. Maybe don't let me prepare any meals for a while. I hope I didn't give too much away...
Shhh, here are the magic words: MELODY GLOUCESTER PEGASUS. Won't you please come in?
If you adore We Have Always Lived in the Castle, may I make a recommendation?
Look for something in the Gothic vein, like Jane Eyre. I assure you, there will be no regrets.
