Overview

"Mother has called me a daw in peacock's feathers, and 'tis true, though I wear my feathers well." Emilia is an accomplished portrait painter who aspires to rise above her station. She can keep a secret if 'twill further her ambitions. Appearance is all, and though she may play the game of courtship, none shall know her heart. (Short story, 7,670 words)
Excerpt:
"She shall speak of portraiture," said the Master. "May I unveil the canvas that thou hast brought?"

"I shall not speak of it," said the Viscount, then gasped when the portrait was revealed. "I know not which to admire more: the skill of the painter, or the beauty of she who is painted. Princess Agnes's fair features are rendered e'en more beauteous by her sweet nature, which you have revealed so estimably.... Has she returned to Court then?"
"Nay, she is yet sequestered, though there is no risk of contagion."
