BLURB:

 

Coral, the second of seven sisters, has been hiding her affair with the perfect man until her older sister can get her life together. But the perfect man is getting impatient and now she’s gotten pregnant. Coral decides it’s time to consider her own happiness.

 

But what does she want? The perfect husband turns out to be less than ideal. She adores the small children she teaches but the idea of being a mother fills her with joy. Meanwhile, her homeland is gripped by fear of a Mongol invasion and she can’t stop crying about everything now that she’s with child.

 

Then a friend suggests the ever-caring Coral possesses a power well beyond what she or anyone else imagines. Does she? And why is the idea so appealing?

 

When Coral’s big sister loses faith in the army and decides to craft a way to use magic to save Ilari from the Mongols, she decides Coral’s formidable talent is what the realm needs. Can Coral raise a baby, placate an absent military husband who thinks he’s stopping the invasion, and help her sister save her homeland?

Exclusive Excerpt):

 

 

Davor had promised to come meet my family once our wheat harvest was in and he arrived for the first ank break after school restarted.

 

He laid the charm on thick when he greeted my mother and she melted under his flattery. Most people did. She hastened to prepare the guest room and then began discussing wedding plans with him. I’m sure she attributed his relative lack of interest to his gender. I noticed he never mentioned how excited he was to wed me. If she noticed the omission, she hid it well.

 

Once my mother was in the kitchen, making sure the dinner was fit for a guest, he greeted my blushing sisters. Well, some blushed. Others scrutinized this older Mozdol who’d gotten their sister pregnant. Sulphur, the sister born after me, seldom paid attention to any man we dated, but she hung on Davor’s every word. I wondered why.

 

My father was out in the fields when Davor arrived. The oats had to be planted soon after the wheat was harvested, meaning this was still a busy time for him. He probably wished Davor knew more about grain farming and had waited another ank to come.

 

Maybe it was Dad’s fatigue, but Davor failed to charm him. When he asked my dad to bless our nuptial plans, my father responded politely but I could sense no warmth between them.

 

Davor barely touched me the entire evening, even during the few moments when my family gave us time alone. He asked after my health, but otherwise had little to say. He left early the next morning.
