During her journey, Tabby comes to know a wealthy businessman, a character we originally met in Book 1 - The Hummingbird and the Sea. She forms ties with his family, including his pregnant wife’s mystical sister, who senses an unfathomable connection with the healer.
Always at the forefront of Tabby’s thoughts is Kirkcaldie, the handsome and enigmatic Governor’s Surveyor with whom she is romantically tied.
