Alexandra thought her life would never change. She expected to go on living her days in the castle with her father Ludwig, the failed poet, and her maid, the wise Galstina, as her only companions. She would always be trying to catch a glimpse of her mother, as the escaped queen ran from the stables to the rose bushes, avoiding the palace guard.
And of course, there was the matter of grand piano made of glass that she swallowed as a child, sitting inside her at all times. But then Lucien arrived, and suddenly, anything seems possible.
