(From the publisher):
In 480 BC, Xerxes gathers a great army to bring down Athens. These first long shadows of turmoil to come reach Hagio, High Priestess of Delphi and leader of free women and their young, the Leave-Takers far to the north of Thrace. In a quickly changing world, Hagio must confront her own past to ensure a secure future: she knows the manipulative priest Milos will pursue her, but her determination to deny him must hold firm.
To find escape in the world of men and the cult that would ensnare her, Hagio must first overcome her own fears; she is more than she seems.
