A young orphan who is goddaughter to king lives with him when her parents die. Court is hard on her and she sets up superstitions as a defense mechanism - as well as tears to thwart attacks to herself while there for 10 years. Her superstitions are real - her tears are a defense. A Lord looking for a wife comes to court after years away. He needs coin a dowry will bring to return his keep to its rightful splendor. He sees her and is aghast at her behavior. He will never be so desperate to marry money as to wed to this gal. A plot to gain her hand is found out by him. He means to save her from a bad future when he finds himself caught in the center of the plot himself. She has performed a superstitious ritual to try to select her future husband. She sees him in a "dream" and feels it is fated - she knows nothing about the plot - until after she is married. One member of the plot with devious intent is upset and tries to kill her husband several times. This story is about the deadly plots, the ways they are thwarted, the reasons behind the attempts are surprising. It is not for revenge or greed. Soley for love of another. This is a good Sands book - although a bit of humor involved - it is not as funny as many of her books I have read. Still, I enjoyed it.
