In a fictitious medieval empire, Freya is a soldier; except for her young life as a member of the lowest social caste, she has never been anything but a soldier.
Dragan has been her partner for twelve long hard years, and he has earned his retirement. His dream of returning to the family farm with Freya as his wife is finally at is fingertips.
Peace terrifies Freya. It is a way of life she cannot imagine, and when circumstances force her hand, it is one she learns to resent.
In Touchstone, every character tries their hardest to hold onto their dream of ideal happiness, without realizing that their dream might cost them the only real joy they have.
Although Touchstone is centred on the relationship between a hero and heroine, it is not a traditional romance. It is a tragedy; there is no happy ever after. At the time of writing there was no plan for a sequel, and there is none to date.
