Carin has never known hunger.
Born in the Hearthland village of Haveranth, a lush land of fertile fields, her biggest worry is whether or not she and her three friends will find their true names on their Journeying. But when one of them is murdered on the morning of their departure, they are forced to leave without answers, grief-stricken and afraid.
As they travel north, Carin discovers a rotting truth of Haveranth and the Hearthland that surrounds it. Their land's bounty is no mystery, and outside the Hearthland's mountain-guarded valley, other peoples suffer for the wealth that sustains Carin's homeland.
Carin has a lover. A family. Friends. A house she built with her hands. And Carin has a choice.
Leave, and she forsakes her life and becoming Nameless in an unknown exile.
Stay, and the horrors her land has wrought continue. Stay, and she becomes complicit.
