Orphaned as a young girl, lowlander Miara has worked as a servant for highland nobility her whole life. As a seamstress to the High Lady of Tai Man, she tries to keep her eyes down and her speech respectful. She has no desire to be sent away to a resettlement camp for insolence.
But when High Lady Lu Shi discovers that Miara is a lowland dreamer, she begs Miara to seek a vision of her future. Miara agrees, but the journey to the lowlands brings her face to face with the past she has tried to forget.
If the dreams bring answers the high lady doesn’t like, will Miara suffer for her gift? And can she return to the highlands once her blood has awakened?
A fantastic short story! I absolutely loved this exploration of Miara’s world and her past. As well as that of her future. Vividly penned, Amy barely takes a sentence to drag one willingly from the real world into this world of dreamers, highlanders and lowlanders. It barely takes a moment to read, but the memories will last a lot longer.
