Sixteen-year-old Lark Carew is happiest close to home, tending her garden and gathering herbs for medicines. But when her Sight warns her that monsters called Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec. Little does she suspect that one of the Riders, Gharain, is the very man who has haunted her visions. Or that the people of Tarnec have called her there for another reason: Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in Balance. To take back the Life amulet, Lark will have to discover her true inner strength and give in to a love that she swears will be her downfall.

Flora Thompson was born in an Oxfordshire hamlet in 1876. She left school at 14 and went to work as a clerk in a small village post office until her marriage to John Thompson. She is perhaps best remembered for her semi-autobiographical trilogy which evokes, through childhood memories in the person of Laura, in a vanished world of agricultural customs and rural culture in England of the 1880s.
