Myne has finally started to adjust to her new life... but once a bookworm, always a bookworm. As winter sets in, there are historical methodologies to try: papyrus, clay tablets... anything that can hold letters and words. Even if it means getting well enough to visit the forest! But first there are chores to do and mythical fruits to cook.
Fortunately, Myne has an ally in Otto, her father's paperwork-swamped colleague. Can he teach her how to read and write in this world and put her to work somewhere that will advance her goals and status? Or will she be stuck as a poor, illiterate girl forever?
