When the King Comes Home by Caroline Stevermer

Good King Julian of Aravis has been dead for two hundred years, but his kingdom still misses him. The current occupant of the throne is old and witless and has no heir. The true ruler of Aravis is the powerful Prince Bishop, who controls both church and state.

When the King comes home, all wishes will be granted.

Hail Rosmer wants to be an artist—not an ordinary artist, but a great artist, like the fabled Maspero, who designed the walls of Aravis and made Good King Julian's crown.

When the King comes home, all dreams will be made real.

One day Hail sees an old man fishing in the river and eating his catch raw. The man is bearded and kingly in appearance; his clothes look antique. He looks exactly like long-dead King Julian IV of Aravis. And there begins an adventure that takes Hail and her enigmatic companion from palace to wilderness to battlefield and teaches her, and the rest of Aravis, what really happens when the King comes home.
