Cast Long Shadows
By Cat Hellisen
Marjeta Petrell. Replacement bride, shadow of a dead and perfect wife, step-mother to a duke’s treasured daughter.
A girl out of her depth, alone and afraid.
Magic runs deep in her veins, stitched in blood ties, embroidered with kindness and pain.
In an unfamiliar court, Marjeta must discover who are her friends, who are enemies, and who she can trust before she is accused of witchcraft and executed.
