This little story, or big depending on how you look at it, is not something that you would expect to hear about. It is not a story of great deeds, or about a great hero. She wasn't a hero. She was a fisher from Alaska doomed to a life she never would have chosen and quest that wasn't even hers. Her adventure was entirely unexpected. Or at least, that's how the story went.
Part of series, but acts as a stand alone.

"Something was not quite right. Rather, something was not quite right with Alunim and she couldn't place what it was. Perhaps her nerves were getting the best of her, twisting up inside her to the point she thought she might fall off her horse. Perhaps she was feeling fear, the sort that came from nowhere and had no explanation. Or perhaps, and she considered this to be the most likely source, she was feeling suddenly very out of place in what she considered to be her home.
The Grey Havens were a place that did not change. It was ironic, really, considering they were next to the ocean that was always changing and growing and moving. New buildings, and homes more importantly, had not been added for an age, nor had any of the old ones been drastically altered beyond the usual repairs. No child had been born in over two-thousand years. Alunim could not remember the last time someone moved there for any reason other than sailing.
The endurance and sameness was a charm of the Grey Havens that Alunim liked to do without. It was the reason she left in the first place."
