Two Women
Elske -- a girl with no future, until her grandmother's sacrifice saves her from certain death
Beriel -- an imperious princess, determined to claim the kingdom that is her birthright

Fate brings them together, both exiles, one servant to the other. To Beriel, the mistress, Elske offers steadfast loyalty and courage -- hard to come by in her dangerous quest to regain the throne she has been denied by treachery. To Elske, the handmaiden, Beriel's proud example provides a perhaps even more precious gift -- the strength to find her true self.
