Myra wife of Rolf Magusson, and mother of his two children. Who tills a farm a few leagues outside of town. Rolf is consider a lucky man amongst his peers. For Myra is considered a beauty and thus should have been beyond his reach. Ten years they have been married. Since Myra was sixteen years of age. The two children are eight and seven. Life is good for Myra and her family.
But all of that is soon to end. The tranquil setting of their world is turned upside down. Invaders have invaded the lands. A call for able body men to muster up in forming of a militia to meet the invaders and drive them off. Of course Rolf sense of duty leads him to enlist. As well as her father in-law. Her mother-in-law, mother and father. Who from an injury a few years ago. Is in no condition to be of any use to fight. Will be along with many others fleeing the advancing army of invaders, refugees. It is decided the children will go with them.
Myra through refuses to go. Someone has to stay and tend to the farm. Feed the livestock, watch over the harvest. Of course it is thought if the invaders do get close enough. Myra will be able to escape. Especially since the children have been sent to safety already.
Of course when captured she will not know the fate of the others. Has she lost everything. Her husband, children and parents.
For the invaders it is evident to who capture her. That she is a rare beauty. She has all the pleasing curves. Yet it is her lips that are so striking. Lush, ripe and full of promise. Lively green eyes that ensnare those that look to long into them. So that one might actually think they have saved this woman from a life of drudgery of mundane with a simple farm life. Simply put she is a woman that one would conquer ten kingdoms, slaughter thousands to possess.
Myra is no seductress. She is down to earth, earthy person. A descent cook, with skills to sew and stitch together clothes. Also with skills to tending to the live stock of the farm. Some knowledge with the crops. Along with some knowledge on caring for illness and other hurts. After all she is a mother. Finally even at twenty six she is still quite vibrant and holds her natural beauty.
