In an era where the drums of war echo over the Northern plains, when the arrival of the next Copper Moon brings about whispers of a shadowy threat, Nell Yngram is only concerned with struggling to make ends meet. 

Earning a living as a Lampgirl, and having serviced the Moreighs for the last couple of years, she yet dreams of being assigned to the family's ancestral home at Ashenlight. Despite talk of dark secrets plaguing the Samarna Palace, Nell only seeks to earn a good enough sum with which to send back to her family and allow her to return to them. 

At present, however, such a wish seems impossible. 

Yet when the former Baron passes away under unforseen circumstances, and his exiled son returns with a foreign bride-to-be, it seems that things certainly are about to change...

A story about intertwining lives and internal struggles, dark magic in a rapidly-changing society, and the acceptance of Fate.

I like that your protagonist isn't the same body type as most other female protagonists. I feel like women who aren't traditionally beautiful are underrepresented in literature :)
