"This is not the way to spend a beautiful spring morning! Elena Klovis thought, as she peered aroudn the pile of bandboxes in her arms. They were full of hats, so they weren't particularly heavy--unlike most of her stepmother's luggage--but they were very awkward to carry. There was a lark serenading the morning somewhere overhead, and Elena wished with all her heart she was him and not herself." The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms) by Mercedes Lackey
