1.01 Arrival in Netherby

Dear Dr. Maguire and Sister Rose,

I trust this letter finds you both well. I just have time for a short note to let you know that I have landed safely in Saint Cloud. The journey was long and uneventful, I must admit I was secretly hoping for a dramatic adventure but I’m happy to be settled in my new home.

My apartment is small but clean. I felt instantly at home in Netherby the moment my taxi turned onto Collins Street, I do hope to meet more people from the neighbourhood when I return from Hudson. I must thank you both once again for giving me the opportunity to go to university, I will never forget your kindness and generosity and I do hope to return the favour some day.

The coach leaves at 8:00 tomorrow morning and I haven’t yet begun to pack my things so I must finish this letter. I’m nervous and excited to meet my Sorority sisters, I will write more once I’m settled on campus.

All my love,
Amerika

    1. Hi Vinna, welcome and thanks! It’s been quite fun writing in letter format, challenging too 😉
      I love the way you’re exploring Nessie’s character in so much more depth, she’s absolutely fantastic.
