Living in royalty can't be so bad, right? 
But... what if you're not technically royal?

In late eighteenth century Europe, nestled in eastern France, is a peaceful kingdom called Totresia. A carriage wreck disturbs that peace when found by Totresian King Edouard and his wife, Queen Clémentine. The accident's significance has a ripple-effect on the entire country, and its only survivor? A baby girl, the same age as Edouard's first-born son, Antoine. This baby girl--Marguerite, nicknamed "the flower that braved the storm"--has to learn the intricacies of growing up as a foster-child in a royal household, and what being nobility entails. And how being an outsider to the royal blood-line could compromise all that was promised to her--especially if a member of said royal household dislikes her. Marguerite's proximity with the Crown Prince, Antoine; her frolicking with the Princes, Sébastien and Jules; and her sisterly feelings towards the Princess, Cordelia--all are jeopardized by individuals with foul intentions and blackened hearts, hiding in darkened corridors of the magnificent Torrinni Castle.
•
In this first installment of the GOLDEN UNIVERSE, we watch Marguerite's struggles, see her affinities with the royals, and meet all those who surround her--whether they've met her or have yet to.
