Summary

Summary

A twist of fate. A newfound friend. A place to finally call home. Ever since her mother’s death, Una has suffered through years of loneliness in the royal palace, where girls are treated as an afterthought. She yearns for a different life but is unsure how to make anyone notice her. Then her father announces a special contest: whoever finds the rare silva flower can present it to Una for her twelfth birthday and receive a reward. Frustrated by her father’s grand but empty gesture, Una decides to take her fate into her own hands. Julien, a young pauper, has tried his whole life to make something of nothing, alongside his hardworking Baba. When Baba is unjustly arrested, Julien’s only hope to save his father is to win the palace contest—to find the elusive silva flower. Little does he know that Una has decided to embark on a journey to find the prize as well. As Una and Julien search for the flower, their destinies intertwine and offer a reward greater than anything either could have ever hoped for: the feeling of belonging.
