It never occurred to them to ask if they could go home again; old lives somehow forgotten in the ebb and flow of Narnian life. If Peter ever wonders why, he’s never said, and Susan’s learned better than to stir up old memories.

Because in the end, they hadn’t been asked at all.

Thrust out of one world and into another, their lives reset without pardon or apology. Somehow it’s crueler, that temporal forgiveness, than the actual loss of fourteen years. Because everything’s the same here, except for them, and Susan wonders if they’ll ever win back what Narnia stole.
