Beatrice Ragnell dreams of becoming a priest and saving the world. Emi L'Hime dreads her engagement to a far-off noblewoman. The two meet at the library and instantly bond over books. The spark of love ignites immediately. But tensions are high in the city of Balarand. Foreign soldiers stand guard in the streets--their flag flies above the castle. As winter sets upon the city, Can Beatrice and Emi's love overcome the ice wall of fate that rises up to meet them?

It's a story filled with ComingOfAge drama and some serious issues about a military occupation by a [[ForeignRulingClass foreign government,]] but it is also an adorable, SugarWiki/{{WAFF}}y SliceOfLife story about two young women having a great time together.
