Her life is a shadow of a life. Her future is not her own to fashion.Her family is a tangle of secrets. She cannot read. She cannot write.But she is Parastrata Ava, the Captain's eldest daughter, the so girl of a long-range crewe—her obligations are grave and many.And when she makes a mistake, in a fragrant orchard of lemons, the consequences are deadly.There are some who would say, there but for the Mercies go I.There are some who would say Parastrata Ava is just a silly earthstruck girl who got what was coming to her.But they don't know the half of it.
