This is fantastic. Not that it shocks me or anything. I really admire that every new story of yours that I read has the same enchanting power to it, but it always brings and offers something new, something that totally fascinates you and pulls you in.

I'm a sucker for fairy-taleish narration, so of course I was enjoying the entire narrative all the way. It was also great how you maintained that magical tone even when you were describing modern events, i.e. the Second War. The plot you have here is so intriguing, combining Tennyson, Snow White and Gubbyness (which, I think, should be a new term in the world of writing) - who could possibly resist that? I liked how easily you explained the history of the family, interlacing the facts with poetic descriptions. Sometimes it's so hard to build up a proper background, it always takes me hundreds and hundreds of pointless words, but you've done well with this.

As this is an introduction chapter, we can't see much of the characters, but they all have a vibe and that special something that just makes you want to read on and connect with them. The madness of the mother is such a strong element, leaving deep traces on the girls, therefore there are so many ways to go. I can't help wondering about them all, what will happen and so on. Luckily I have the next chapters to read.

Oh and I really liked the last paragraph, especially the last line. A great way to finish the chapter, leaving behind something significant and pulling you headfirst into the story completely now. It sounded like a poem and I loved that.
