Miss Bietrix Sweetmeadow
Her family's city home in Bree
"She had gold, she had grace
Hide, woman, hide
But she's never learnt a lady's place
She won't lay down her pride"
- "Hide" by Emily Portman
Born to new money, inheritance has dogged Bietrix's steps from the moment she first took them. She was raised in easy trappings--a soft childhood and comfortable adolescence, where all that she desired was but a question from her fingertips. Should requests fail, her temper would easily win her way, and this has never changed.
Her brother James was always milder by far, with brown eyes like a dappled fawn, and the moods to match. He was easy to love, where she was not, and in his company she often struggled to win her father's favor. And yet somehow, he always seemed to dote upon her over James in the end, no matter how spoiled or troublesome she might be.
A family so new to prosperity has many concerns. Stability, good marriages, reputation... Each story of success holds a closet full of skeletons, and Bee is not afraid to turn the key.
Tradition states that the father's wealth should pass to the eldest male heir, and yet there is none better learned, better prepared to manage business; none with a keener mind nor sharper tongue than herself, and she will risk everything for it. Deals must be struck, bets must be placed, and certain longings must go unfulfilled. But in the end it will all be worth it. And if not, there are always secrets better left unturned.
