The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen - Hans Christian Andersen, T. Pym Kay and Gerda's stories start quite similarly. Both are carried off, partly as a result of their own actions, though they are taken far further than they thought. Both are trapped by magical beings who cause them to lose their memory and give them impossible or meaningless occupations. The difference is, Gerda escapes...

The story is really about her journey, as for what it all means, I'm still trying to figure that out.
