Could one unique flower take seed on lands scorched by wars if showered with the right kind of love? The girl with the strange blue eyes had to disguise herself as a boy. It was the only way she could have called the battlefield home for so long now, that she could barely remember the life she had prior. The clashing of the swords mirroring the clashing of the feelings inside of her; should she trust this General or not? Could she put her trust in them, in men, when they were responsible for all the horrors she has witnessed for half of her life? Love appears in someone’s life from strange places and takes them to even stranger ones. A tale of growing up, friendship and romance ***This novel is set in a time when the great Silla people managed to unify the lands of the Three Kingdoms. It is a slice of life story seasoned with some spice on the side. The 18+ rating is for some explicit scenes, but from cover to cover the story wants to give the reader the opportunity to get to know and grow closer to the characters as they grow up and mature ***(I will acknowledge the work and help of a wonderful leprechaun(she says) a member of inkitt smircle, for proofreading my chapters. Special thanks for editing and advice to Cricket_Elleson, crixi and Will63.
