What is Acha's Choice? Princess Acha, daughter of Saxon King Aelle and sister of newborn Prince Edwin, must decide what to do to protect herself and Edwin when an enemy king kills their father and seeks to remove any heirs to the throne. With the help of friends, Acha takes Edwin and other refugees to the western lands of the Britons. These kind people take the band in and shelter them, in spite of the fact that they are Saxons and therefore enemies of the native Britons. Here in the deep, mysterious woods, Acha finds someone to love. But her relationship threatens the safety of her party, and Acha must decide if she can surrender her brother and others she loves to return into danger, alone. Only then can she find a way to guarantee young Edwin's safety by a choice at once breathtaking and final. What will Acha decide?
