''At least she's not alone with Madame Ghede at her side. The witch won’t ever admit that, but she’s happy to have found a true and witty friend in Cinders. Finally she has someone she can share her travels with, someone worthy of bestowing with her knowledge. They lead the life of traveling wise women, often persecuted or misunderstood, but free and welcomed by those who need their services. She thinks of her old family sometimes, but receives no news about their circumstances. She can’t help but wonder what happened to Lady Carmosa and her daughters. These moments of nostalgia quickly pass though, when she realizes that she lives a new life now, one that would be impossible if she decided to stay.''
