(From the publisher):
Once upon a winter's night, a poor crofter's daughter is traded by her family to marry a man she has never met: Prince Alain of the Summerwood, in the realm of Faery.
Carried to her fate by a huge white bear, Camille enters a land where time holds no sway—and where wonders both marvelous and malevolent abound. And though love blossoms between Camille and her prince, an unknown sadness seems to haunt him and he will never let her see his unmasked face. But then one night, thinking to break whatever curse has been laid upon him, Camille acts on her own—with dreadful results, as all she loves is terribly, magically swept away.
Now, to regain what she has lost, Camille must embark on a desperate quest through the hinterlands of Faery, seeking a mysterious place east of the sun and west of the moon...
