In war-torn Leithe, a young wife frets as battle rages just miles from where she’s camped. She fears for her husband, the child in her womb and wants nothing more than a promise of peace. When her warlord husband arrives unexpectedly, they share a rare moment alone together, discussing the inevitable, making promises they know can’t be kept and naming their unborn daughter… who will one day save not only her father’s people, but the entire world.
