Your mother is a Librarian. Because of that, we tend to think of her as a Librarian first, and a person second. Our knowledge of her as a Libraian clouds everything else. [...] Shasta has her own agenda, kid. I don't think any of us can presume to understand exactly what she's up to. Your father saw something in her. I still think he's a fool for marrying her, but for a Libraraian, she isn't too bad.
