Adelia has no one to blame for her heartache. She'd been cautioned, many times and by many people. Everyone except her mother had told her it was folly to marry an elf, citing a host of reasons. Adelia knew their warnings were not unfounded. She knew he was very different from her and her kind - he was much older, and he'd had five other wives before her. She didn't care. She had chosen her path.
