The year: 1760. Anna Greyson arrives in the Faeran Valley. What she thought would be a life of adventure with her husband turns out to be isolation in a deceptively broken land, until she meets the man who brought her to the Valley. Alex. The last of the Bremistans who settled the Valley centuries before. Anna holds the legend he needs to rescue the Valley from the cruelty his ancestors wreaked on the fruitless land. However, he is as fragile as the land is broken, powerless to restore the Valley. But Anna knows nothing of this and the deeper she involves herself in the Bremistan legend, the more inextricable her life becomes. When Alex offers her a life that will bring her everything she longs for, the cost is greater than she can foresee. Yet in the shadows grows a thread of hope. Anna wraps herself around that thread while the quiet power rises in her to endure the brokenness of her world until the last hope of the Faeran Valley reveals itself.
