I really enjoyed this book. It has some good tension and sadness, but also good deeds and happiness.

Corie was born out of wedlock to a local witch (more specifically a herb healer) after an affair with a married lord. After the death of her father, who she never met, her uncle shows up at her grandmother's, where she has lived all her life. Then begins her summers at Castle Auburn, where the royalty live and where court is held. More importantly, that is where her half-sister, Elisandra, and Elisandra's mother, Greta, reside. Immediately Corie is accepted and loved by Elisandra while also being scorned by Greta. She also develops a strong, loving relationship with her uncle, Jaxon. While carefree in her youth working as her grandmother's apprentice during most of the year and visiting the castle during the summer, soon life changes and every year becomes more stressful and plagued with choices that Corie must make. Her life finally comes to a crossroad. Her sister will soon marry the prince; she doesn't agree with her uncle's profession; and she is unsure of love. She is facing a bittersweet ending.
