Born into a family of light mages, eighteen-year-old Violet Race knows her place in the universe and where her future lies. In Harper's Mill. On the family orchard. And with Brick Hamilton by her side. Brick Hamilton is restless in the small town he grew up in. He’ll wind up there eventually but college has taught him school isn’t for him. He’s just taken the armed services aptitude test and he’s eyeing up a future away from Harper’s Mill. Away from Violet. But when the magic of a midsummer full moon strikes and passion strikes, will it be enough? Will Violet’s girlish dreams of happily ever after come true? Or will Brick’s plans away from Harper’s Mill tear them apart?
