Silvia Amanda Whelan, or as she is known to her family and friends, Silver, is on top of her game. She's the leading salesperson for Whelan Gold, a family business which has been part of her heritage for the last four generations.
While on a routine business trip, however, Silver gets the surprise of her life when she is called by magic through a mirror... and into another world.
Sangria is like Earth, but very different - because on this world, magic is real. Silver encounters this magic in the form of a young girl, who she quickly learns is more then she appears.
For although Keridwen is currently in the form of a ten-year-old child, she is really a thirty-four year old military commander, who was cursed ten years ago, and lost her command, her kingdom, and everything she held dear.
Through the magic, Silver becomes Keridwen's guardian; responsible not only for her health and safety, but also her actions, many of which land the Little General in a heap of trouble - and often over Silver's knee.
Despite Keridwen's size, and other shortcomings, Silver is determined to help her. Through their adventures, together, Silver finds herself falling in love with both the Little, and the grown-up General.
With the help of her new guardian, Keridwen manages to regain some control, and to stay tall for longer and longer periods of time, but will the growth spurts last, and will that be enough to ensure that Silver and Keridwen can find happiness in the strange world of Sangria?
