As Lucien turned he noticed that the almond tree on the platform had burst into flower at the top. Yesterday there was nothing but its bare branches; but spring had proved too strong for it, and straight from the bare wood had come the starry pink blossoms.
The winter was over and gone, the flowers had come to the north--and the birds had begun their singing.
- Treasures of the Snow, Chapter 26
The final episode pretty much neatly wraps up the story. Everything in Rossiniere is back the way it is now that Dani's leg is completely healed. Everyone is now contemplating their future lives, as if the accident had never occurred.
As per my usual practice, I would like to make some concluding remarks.
This project has been one of the most difficult projects we have ever worked on. Between my having health problems throughout a substantial portion of this project, staff scheduling, and the sheer emotional strength of the storyline and the faithfulness of its presentation, progress on this project was very slow and difficult. As I mentioned in my introductory post on this series, even though the series is adapted from a primarily Christian novel, the lessons that we can take away from the series of forgiveness and patience are lessons that all faiths and creeds teach.
I would like to personally thank everyone who have assisted us in making this project possible. Again, the sheer number of folks that have contributed to this project in some way or fashion is too numerous to count. It didn't matter what kind of obscure material that we needed help on, such as German language translation, or obscure Biblical references, someone stepped up and made this project better in the end.
I would also like to thank all of our supporters for sticking with us thick and thin, and it is for you all that we finally finish this series. The series was definitely difficult to work with, but it was all well worth it in the end, for the storyline and for everyone who wanted this series to be subbed.
