Karen Chilton narrates a royal love story. Sanyu, crown prince of Njaza, must wed, but he vows he will not fall in love with Shanti, the bride chosen for him. Shanti approaches marriage with equal pragmatism, as her goal since childhood has been to become a queen. Chilton is compassionate in her portrayal of Sanyu, who has suffered years of emotional abuse but is still realistic about the work he must do. Shanti is portrayed by Chilton as driven and determined, but with an underlying human vulnerability that ultimately makes her all the more powerful. The political situation the pair must navigate is complex but not insurmountable, and Chilton keeps her portrayals of the various ministers and palace staff distinct.
