A collection of three novellas, exploring relationships as they change, grow, and flourish over the winter holidays.
Casting Nasturtiums is the story of Seth, Golshan, and Dilly (referenced briefly in Eclipse) as they rebuild their lives after the Great War. (Polyamorous MMF relationship, set in the second half of 1919).
Country Manners finds Giles and Kate visiting his family for the holidays together for the first time (after their engagement in 1921). Together they uncover a small mystery and face down some wrong-headed assumptions.
Chasing Legends explores some of the many mysteries of Schola. A small group of staff and associates are gathered over the winter holidays in 1926 for a feast, when there is a loud knock on the door of the Great Hall. Thesan, Isembard, Pross, and Ibis must combine their skills and talents to confront their fears and solve a centuries-old problem.
