She desperately needs their advice as sheG++-----++++s been assigned to the military hospital that has set up camp inside her biological motherG++-----++++s childhood homeG++-----++----+Nanreath Hall. Anna was just six-years-old when her mother, Lady Katherine Trenowyth, died. All she has left are vague memories that tease her with clues she canG++-----++++t unravel.
