That Line from Mirette

With S. in Port Book and News; she was shopping for her granddaughter, who is four. I showed her Mirette on the High Wire, by Emily Arnold McCully. 'It has one of the most beautiful lines ever written,' I told her.

This is it: "She stepped onto the wire, and with the most intense pleasure, as she had always imagined it might be, she started to cross the sky."

Oh yes, this is lovely, Mir. Thanks for sharing it. Another one for the grandkids list.
