The Snow Man, by George Sand (1804 - 1876)
George Sand presents a novel containing one of her favorite crafts, besides creating wonderful literary works. This one involves the making and staging of marionettes; an art which she and her children engaged in at Nohant, her country home to entertain themselves and their honored guests.

Hello! I just noticed that the MW states section 14 should start with "After eight days", but it actually starts with "As soon as I realized...". I've tried searching for another split perhaps a few pages later with those words, but no luck as of yet. As it is right now, Chapter 6 section 1 is about 4 pages long, and Chapter 6 section 2 is about 22 pages long. I'm happy to read them as they're split now, but wanted to double check before I proceeded further.
Cheers,
Claire

Thanks Claire. Let me look at this and fix the MW.
