Immediately after the uprising, Lhyn Rivers is called to account for her involvement in an event that shocked the world. Disturbed by her interview and missing her bondmate, she finds refuge at Hol-Opah.
Salomen Opah is at loose ends, trapped on her holding with nothing to do and no distractions from unwanted memories. Lhyn's arrival is a welcome excuse to get out and return to an old, beloved pastime.
For five days, Salomen and Lhyn journey through landscapes both physical and emotional. Their quiet exploration brings more than just the peace they seek: it brings an unlooked-for gift that will change four lives.
This novella takes place between Books 8 and 9 (Uprising and Alsea Rising: Gathering Storm) in the Chronicles of Alsea.
