The Forest Temple was a paradise. Cut away from the rest of the world, six year old Rhen had nothing to occupy her days but to enjoy time spent with her mother and her many doting aunts, playing in the gardens and listening to their songs. Every turning year brought new women to the temple – a haven from the unknown that stretched beyond the whitewashed walls.
Yet even Rhen knows deep down that something is wrong. Her paradise is a prison, and she must take care to remain unnoticed by her jailers. When the priests of the temple begin to question her existence, the walls that she believed had kept her safe will be pulled to rubble.
