The Sworn Virgin
A NovelBook - 2017
When Eleanora's father is shot dead on the cobblestone streets of 1910 Albania, she must abandon her dreams and struggle to survive in a remote mountain village with her stepmother Meria. Nearing starvation, Meria sells Eleanora into marriage with the cruel heir of a powerful clan. Intent on keeping her freedom, Eleanora takes an oath to remain a virgin for the rest of her life-- a tradition that gives her the right to live as a man: she is now head of her household and can work for a living as well as carry a gun. When an injured stranger stumbles into her life, Eleanora nurses him back to health, saving his life-- yet risking her own as she falls in love with him.
