A story of romance and adventure, loosely based on historical fact. It is well written, very well taking into account it is a first novel.
It tells the grand story of Toria Brition, a forcibly indentured servant at a hellhole of a settlement in the years proceeding the War of Independence, and goes through some twists and turns as she fights against the injustice of her life to win everything, lose it, and in the end, come out with even more than she bargained for.
It is sweeping in its scope, while still focusing on the human aspect of this historical account. Allowing a glimpse into the vulnerability and the fear of one young woman who refuses to accept her fate, and thus leads a revolution which will give nightmares to any sweatshop owner.
