The Refuge and the House Renaissance
by Michaela Francis
Mathomdale is a dreary mess in the aftermath of the great storm that has wrecked the summer festival. Mathom Hall itself is choked with evacuees and those families and their slaves who have taken refuge there during the storm. As the inhabitants of the valley contemplate the task of clearing up the debris it seems as if the festival, which once held such promise, has ended in catastrophe after all.
But Lady Mathom has other ideas and, determined to wrest triumph from the jaws of disaster, she gathers the ladies of the high families about her and proposes a new outcome to the denouement of the festival. It will see the Lady at her visionary best illuminating the gloom of the festivalís failure with a startling new renaissance which will rejuvenate the House of Mathom and the Line of the Goddess.
This, the seventeenth chapter in the epic Order of the Amethyst series, weaves together many disparate threads and merges them into a new and passionate story of hope and renewed purpose.
