Preparing for the Harvest Festival, taking care of new orphans, dealing with the dissatisfaction of a neighboring town—her list of problems just keeps on growing. On top of all that, Ferdinand the High Priest is being as harsh as can be. Still, Rozemyne doesn’t give up! Encouraged by meetings with her lower city family and friends, she recharges by reading books in the temple!

Summary

Effa goes with Tuuli to deliver a hair ornament, allowing Effa to see her daughter Rozemyne again. She worries that Rozemyne is not supplied with adequate familiar care.

Harvest Festival preparations commence. After the meeting, Ferdinand explains details to her, such as the feyplants gathered for a potion called a jureve that will help her mana flow and take care of her illness. Details of the Festival are also discussed, and Benno wishes to send gray priests to the new monastery at Hasse. Ferdinand selects the chief soldier of the Eastern Gate, Gunther, to guard the monastery.

Rozemyne and Ferdinand head for Hasse on their highbeasts, Rozemyne traveling on Lessy with Brigitte to gain experience. They drop off the gray priests and shrine maidens and return home. After a few days, they return to Hasse to meet its mayor for the orphans. She informs them of what the orphanage is like. Hasse's mayor concealed a few orphans, which were then fetched. The orphans that were concealed were to be sold, and as they did not wish that fate upon themselves, they fled to the new orphanage in the monastery. The new orphans are Marthe, Nora, Thore, and Rick.

Fran loses his temper after the orphans's continued rudeness and misbehavior, and Ferdinand is appalled with their manners. Rozemyne instructs the gray priests to teach them. Fran and Ferdinand also decide to instruct Rozemyne about noble culture.

Rozemyne requests permission to sell children's bibles in the castle. Their discussion is interrupted with the barrier in Hasse going off; the commoners are attacking the monastery. Hasse's Mayor sends a letter to the former High Bishop, Bezewanst, for assistance. Rozemyne sends back a letter in noble euphemisms declaring his death.

Ferdinand, upon learning that he and Rozemyne have different understandings of the word evil, uses Hasse as a learning experience and gives her the task of isolating the mayor so that he can be safely disposed off, with a new mayor ready to take control.

Rozemyne, stressed by this new task, suffers a sleepless night, then returns to the castle for the preparation of clothes for winter socialising as well as bringing Hugo, her chef, home. Wilfried complains about how unfair it was for her to have a meeting with Sylvester, and Rozemyne erupts with stress and accidentally crushes him. She asks permission to use Lessy to travel the castle due to her weakness, then takes back her chef. Sylvester offers to make Hugo a court chef if he stays, but Hugo wishes to marry first.

Rozemyne still suffers stress from the task Ferdinand gave her and feels ill. She meets with the Gilberta Company to discuss her problems and the reopening of the Italian Restaurant. Benno and Mark advise her and help her with Ferdinand's task after talking through the plans for the Italian Restaurant. Rozemyne gives an opening speech at the restaurant, then discusses Hasse with Lutz, Mark, and Benno. They create a merchant-like plan that involve spreading rumors to create dissension.

Rozemyne informs Ferdinand of the plans, and he informs her of the backlash that he's received for Rozemyne's condition, and that he should cheer her up without books. They also shortly discuss Wilfried and his shenanigans.

Rozemyne visits the castle to report on Hasse and Wilfried continues to grumble about unfairness, leading Rozemyne to suggest switching places for a day. Wilfried, believing that Rozemyne is being spoiled, agrees. Rozemyne calls in the favor from Ferdinand to make Sylvester and Ferdinand agree. Wilfried's educational state finally comes out into the open, and Ferdinand desires him to be disinherited for his spoiled behavior and inability to learn. Rozemyne, however, advises Florencia, Wilfried's mother, and Ferdinand that it is due to his learning environment and to not give up hope. She presents an education plan should she be proven right. She is proven correct due to her attendants making Wilfried learn a little. Wilfried is saved.

Preparations for the Harvest Festival commence. Rozemyne and Ferdinand take care of Lord Kantna, who was supposed to buy the orphans. In addition, Rozemyne and Ferdinand visit Hasse for the Harvest Festival and are appalled by the manners of the mayor and the mayor's assistant, Richt, when dealing with nobles.

Rozemyne performs the baptism, coming-of-age, and star-binding ceremonies for the commoners. The festivities begin.

Rozemyne travels from place to place to preform the Harvest Festival. Finally, they reach Dorvan, a small city where the ruelle gathering would take place. The night of Schutzaria approaches. However, small feybeasts called zantze attack. There are too little knights to prevent the gathering from failing, so that even when Rozemyne has managed to get the fruit, it gets eaten by a zantze, sparking an evolution to goltze. Rozemyne, to stop it from rampaging, traps the beast inside a shield of wind. Fighting sleep and mana loss, Rozemyne holds on until Ferdinand arrives thanks to Justus telling Rozemyne about the Royal Academy's library. Ferdinand and Eckhart handle the goltze.

Winter preparations commence even with the failure of the first gathering. Wilma advises her to get new attendants. In addition, Rozemyne advises Ferdinand to train new attendants and delegate work. She gets Sylvester to slow down the printing business and prevents Sylvester from piling more work on Ferdinand.

Brigitte has hope that Rozemyne will send business to her home province of Illgner.
