Oh. My. Gosh. SARAH MADE THE LIST! Lydia wasn’t kidding; Sarah Matthews–MY relatable, time traveling, awkward teen with a penchant for getting herself into trouble–is actually on a list of her favorite fiction women. I can now die in peace! ….. But I can’t, because now I want to write and finish Sarah’s story!

I’d go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I’d look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I’d just feel a prayer.” ~Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
